About Hope Cancer Resources

Location:

5835 W. Sunset Ave, Springdale, AR 72762, US

Mission Statement

Providing compassionate, professional cancer support and education in the Northwest Arkansas region today and tomorrow.

Description

Hope Cancer Resources employs a highly-professional staff which includes a team of licensed oncology social workers, registered nurses, a certified patient navigator, a Spanish interpreter, a certified health education specialist and a certified tumor registrar. A transportation service is provided to take patients to every cancer treatment as needed as well as education to help a patient during and after their treatment. Financial assistance is also provided for prescription medications, nutritional supplements, gas cards, as well as everyday living expenses to alleviate some of the financial stress a patient and their family may face.

Believing emotional support is essential for healthy survivorship, we offer this service ranging from a kind word or listening ear to one-on-one, couples or family counseling sessions with a licensed mental health professional. Hope Cancer Resources also collaborates with other agencies to provide emotional support in group settings.

In addition, Hope Cancer Resources will impact the community by providing free cancer screenings and cancer prevention education for public schools, employers and the general public. This education includes breast self-examination, smoking cessation, reducing tobacco use, promoting healthy lifestyles and other means to reduce the risk of cancer. Hope Cancer Resources also maintains the NWA Cancer Registry, which is a database of the cancers diagnosed here in our area.
