Bone marrow transplants and cellular therapies can help restore health for patients with blood cancers or other blood diseases. The cancer support services team at UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center helps patients and their families through the transplant or cellular therapy process and beyond.  

Our support services include

Cancer psychology: Our licensed clinical psychologists are trained to help cancer patients relieve the stress, sadness, and anxiety that can be associated with cancer and its treatments. 

Integrative therapies: Activities such as art therapy and expressive writing are designed to improve well-being and quality of life during and after cancer treatment. 

Oncology nutrition: Nutrition is an important part of cancer treatment. Our dietitians help patients make informed food choices and ensure nutritional needs are being met during and after treatment.  

Oncology rehabilitation: Cancer rehabilitation specialists help patients maintain or return to functional independence. 

Oncology social work: Social workers trained to work with cancer patients are available to assist with any of the challenges patients might face during or after treatment. 

Spiritual support: Our chaplains provide interfaith support for patients, their caregivers, and their families.  

Support groups and classes: Meeting with others who have gone through or are going through similar cancer journeys can be supportive and therapeutic. Cancer support groups focus on compassion and access to resources. 

Transitional care coordination: Our coordinators help patients transition between care settings, such as from a hospital to home.
