Can I ask one of the doctors on your committee about my diagnosis?
No. The goal of HOPE Cancer Connection is to support you in your diagnosis; we cannot give medical advice. We want to help you work more effectively with your medical team.
Is it possible to attend a support group at another health system than the one I'm being treated at?
Yes. The support groups and resources in the area are for individuals from all health systems.
Will I need permission from my doctor to participate in programs listed on your website?
Yes. Some programs require your doctor to determine if they are a healthy option for you. Your doctor simply needs to sign a form that can be mailed, emailed or faxed to the program director.
Do health systems, businesses and community services pay to be listed on HOPE's website?
No. HOPE Cancer Connection wants to make it easier for you to find the resources you need in the Fox Valley area. We do not receive payment in any form for listing the resources on our website.
