Lymphoma Support Services
Living with lymphoma or getting back to the same quality of life after treatment can be challenging. As cancer specialists, we want to make sure we address every patient’s unique needs at every point in his or her cancer journey.
UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center offers a variety of services to help patients and their loved ones through lymphoma treatment and beyond. Our specially trained support-services staff are available to meet with patients and families whenever necessary.
Our cancer support services include:
Cancer psychology: Meet with a licensed clinical psychologist who is specially trained to help patients with cancer.
EMBRACE Survivorship: EMBRACE is a half-day survivorship symposium designed to assist patients and their families with physical, emotional, and practical issues that can arise during the cancer journey.
Integrative therapies: Activities such as guided imagery, meditation, and expressive writing aim to improve patients’ well-being and quality of life during and after cancer treatment.
Oncology nutrition: A dietitian will help patients make informed food choices that are best for their health at various stages of cancer treatment and beyond.
Oncology rehabilitation: Cancer rehabilitation specialists help patients and survivors maintain or return to their optimal function and quality of life.
Oncology social work: Social workers trained to work with patients who have cancer are available to assist with any challenges they face during or after treatment.
Spiritual support: Our chaplains offer interfaith support for patients, their families, and caregivers.
Support groups and classes: Meeting with others in similar situations can be helpful and cathartic.
Transitional care coordination: Get help transitioning between care settings, such as from the hospital to home.
