At Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center, we offer a wide variety of support programs and services to help sarcoma patients and their loved ones manage the physical and emotional effects of a cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Because sarcoma can affect every aspect of your life, you and your family may benefit from services that address all aspects of cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.
We believe that sarcoma care should go beyond medical treatment by providing you with the tools to manage every stage of the process — from understanding your disease to managing treatment side effects and recovery, and receiving the emotional support you need.
Support services for sarcoma include:
- Counseling for patients and families
- Home Care Services
- Nutritional counseling
- Palliative care and pain management
- Patient education
- Patient navigators
- Stress management
- Support groups
Our sarcoma team also has a close relationship with a number of patient advocacy groups in the community:
