Through a grant from the Colorado Cancer Fund, we have been afforded the opportunity to offer this comprehensive patient navigation guide to individuals who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer in Southwest Colorado. Judy Kneece’s Breast Cancer Treatment Handbook includes 242 pages of critical information, with explicit illustrations, teaching step-by-step all things related to breast cancer, including pathology reports and treatment options. The navigation guide also provides worksheets to help organize thoughts and questions to help prepare for care visits with the oncology and surgery teams. All information is presented in a format to assist patients in making informed decisions about their surgery and other breast cancer treatment options.
Our goal is to increase the quality of life for those who are experiencing a breast cancer diagnosis. We have distributed treatment handbooks to many of the surgeons who work with breast cancer patients in Southwest Colorado. If you live locally, please contact us if you or someone you love could use one — we are so happy to share!
