Education And Support

Our breast cancer care extends beyond diagnosis and treatment to help patients get the support they need for their cancer journey. Here’s what we offer your patients.

We want to help you access all of the care and services you need to aid your healing process. If you have breast cancer, here are some services that may benefit you:

  • An oncology nurse navigator who knows a great deal about the needs of women with breast cancer will be available to listen to you, answer your questions, and help you understand next steps in your treatment. Your navigator also will find resources for you and your family as you move through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond. Your navigator and care team members will partner to provide support for you every step of the way.
  • Sharing Our Strength (SOS) is a breast cancer support group held at Miami Valley Hospital North on the third Monday of the month, at 6 p.m., in the Education Center, located inside the Main Street entrance. A typical meeting offers a guest speaker for the first hour and an opportunity to share and connect with others during the second hour. Topics vary. They include lymphedema, Q & A with an oncology physician or nurse practitioner, community resources, genetics, clinical trials, and diagnosis and treatment updates. Contact (937) 734-6117(937) 734-6117.
