Support Cancer Patient Resources
The Patient and Family Resource Center at UAB’s Comprehensive Cancer Center provides a comfortable place to find support.

The Patient and Family Resource Center provides information on prevention, early detection, disease- specific cancers, treatments, side effects, clinical trials, complementary therapies, stress management, fatigue, spirituality, grief, financial and employment support, emotional care, children’s concerns and end-of-life care. We have free computer access and personal assistance available to help you find reliable information. We also offer roundtable discussions, support groups, one-on-on support, self-advocacy support, patient navigation, creative and complementary programs and Living with Cancer seminars with cancer experts.
