The New Upstate Cancer Center

The New Upstate Cancer Center

For your convenience during the construction of Upstate's new Cancer Center, we offer ambassadors services to guide you to your appointment as well as provide wheelchair transportation, to and from the second floor of Upstate's attached garage.

Emotional and Survivor Support

We recognize that breast cancer can have a physical and emotional impact. We have a psychologist on staff who focuses on helping patients cope with the stress and realities of having breast cancer, and explores these effects on emotional health and well-being.

In addition, we have nurse practitioners who mentor a support group called Life After Breast Cancer: A Journey Toward Wellness PDF Icon. This nine-week program explores:

  • Complementary therapies
  • Personal growth
  • Getting in touch with inner resources
  • Inspiration from personal sharing with other survivors

The changes a woman experiences during and after her diagnosis and treatment will change her life forever. Your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual recovery may take months, or even longer. The Breast Care Center and the Multi-Disciplinary Breast Cancer Program physicians, nurse practitioners, and staff are here to assist you in all aspects, from diagnosis and treatment through follow-up and survivorship.
