Skin Cancer Support
UT Southwestern’s Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center offers a wide range of support services to help our patients and their loved ones through skin cancer treatment and beyond.
We have the resources to meet our patients’ unique needs and are available to meet whenever necessary. Our cancer support services include:

- 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 your well-being and quality of life during and after cancer treatment.
- Oncology nutrition: Our dietitians 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 cancer patients are available to assist with any challenges faced during or after treatment.
- Spiritual support: Our chaplains offer interfaith support for patients and their families and caregivers.
- Support groups and classes: Meeting with others in similar situations can be helpful and cathartic.

- Integrative therapies: Therapies including guided imagery, meditation, expressive writing, and music and art have shown to improve people’s well-being and quality of life during and after cancer treatments.
