Cancer Support Services

From detection and diagnosis, through surgery and treatment and into survivorship and wellness, Athens Regional Medical Center offers cancer patients and their families comprehensive cancer care.

Our cancer support services are here for you, too.

Loran Smith Center for Cancer Support

At the Loran Smith Center for Cancer Support patients find compassionate staff members and volunteers, many of them long-time cancer survivors, who offer support through every step of treatment.

Athens Regional also offers a variety of educational programs and support groups for families dealing with cancer. They range from classes on nutrition and self-image to teachings on healing arts, such as writing and painting. Complementary therapies of healing touch, music and yoga are also provided.

In addition to cancer support and classes, visitors can benefit from the Center's library, including materials for children whose parents have cancer.

There is life after diagnosis. Help starts here.
