You can call a patient navigator at any point in your cancer journey - whether you're newly diagnosed or already in treatment.

Contact: 970.297.6165

Patient navigation helps provide a personalized plan for understanding treatment options and finding access to resources during cancer. This free program matches cancer patients with one of our four, specially-trained nurse Patient Navigators, all experts in cancer treatment and our local and national cancer care systems.

Because cancer care is so complex, navigators are dedicated to lessening the burden of cancer for patients and their loves ones.

Patient navigators help patients:

  • Understand a cancer diagnosis and treatment options.
  • Apply for financial assistance.
  • Find credible online cancer information.
  • Connect to local and national resources available to help during cancer.
  • Link to the Poudre Valley Cancer Network's Clinical Research Team, nutrition counseling, and more.
