The Cancer Resource Center
The Cancer Resource Center at Virginia Hospital Center provides patients, families and the community with resources and services that address cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and support. All are welcome to browse through the Center's library or utilize the computer network and medical databases for information about cancers and their treatments.
Support groups for patients, their families and friends are held regularly. The schedule for these groups is available in the Cancer Resource Center. A complementary care lecture series offers workshops on Tai Chi, Yoga, exercise, stress management, nutrition and many more. Most support groups and workshops are held in the Center and all are free. Short-term individual and/or family counseling is also available to assist with coping with a cancer diagnosis.
Choose a wig or scarf from a large supply of donated items. Attend a Look Good, Feel Better program that offers free makeovers for people undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Or sit in the fresh air of the Healing Garden, just outside the doors of the Center.
The staff and volunteers of the Cancer Resource Center are there to provide you with quality services and information from cancer prevention and detection through diagnosis, treatment, and support. Please let us know how we can assist you or your family members.
The Cancer Resource Center welcomes volunteers who may be interested in assisting with various programs and activities of the Center. Please discuss your interest with Kathy Dorner, Coordinator of the Cancer Center at 703.558.5555.
