Patient Services

Of all the services provided by the American Cancer Society, patient services touch the lives and hearts of cancer patients and their families the most. The American Cancer Society is the first place people call for resources, information and guidance on cancer, as well as practical help from someone who listens.

A phone call away on the American Cancer Society's 1-800-ACS-2345 helpline are trained cancer information specialists who provide accurate, up-to-date information seven days a week, 24 hours a day. It's a direct line to available cancer support programs, community services, and one-on-one assistance.

The American Cancer Society's comprehensive patient services programs help with the emotional, physical and psychological needs associated with cancer.  Call us to request more information on how you can benefit from any of the programs listed below.
