Support For You

Cancer is often described as a “journey” and it’s one of the most challenging journeys most of our patients have ever faced. Research shows this is especially true for patients with pancreatic cancer, who experience even more distress over their diagnosis than people with other types of cancer. This can lead to difficulties sleeping and functioning. Sometimes, medication can help, but we believe patients need support before, during and after their treatment, and we encourage our patients to talk to their doctors about their feelings. El Camino Hospital offers complementary and alternative treatments, listed below, that can help patients cope with their emotions and fears:

  • Art therapy through our custom Creative Expressions program
  • Exercise for cancer patients through the Living Strong, Living Well™ Program
  • Meditation
  • Music therapy
  • Relaxation exercises
  • Support groups so patients can encourage and learn from each other and share first person accounts
  • Nondenominational spiritual care
  • Acupuncture
  • Nutritional counseling that factors in issues such as nausea and “chemo palate”
  • Massage therapy

Our Nurse Navigator and social workers can assist patients and their families – from the first diagnosis all the way through follow-up care.
