When you come to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) for your treatment, we are here to not only treat your disease but to also make sure you are supported throughout your care. Patient navigators can help you and your family “navigate” through SCCA and provide community resources at any point.
How we support you
Patient navigators are culturally sensitive, caring people who are here to listen and help you. You are welcome to contact our patient navigators through their team coordinator, or you may speak to someone in your care team about connecting with a patient navigator.
