Share On Social!

The LIVESTRONG Cancer Navigation Center recently opened in Austin, Texas, to help cancer survivors navigate an often complex health system and organize their paperwork, records, and even their emotions.

The new center, located at 2201 E. Sixth Street and open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST, provides a range of free services for anyone affected by cancer. This includes people diagnosed with cancer, their families, friends, loved ones and the health care professionals who work with them. The center helps people with any cancer type and at any stage of treatment. Assistance is available in both English and Spanish.

Watch a clip here or below of the center’s senior manager of navigation, Melissa Sileo, about why patient navigation is important and how it can help people with cancer focus on that main goal of fighting the disease.
