Cancer Navigators is a regional nonprofit organization, established in 2006, that provides free resources and services to cancer patients in Northwest Georgia and Northeast Alabama. Cancer Navigators serves as a complement to the medical expertise of cancer care providers by guiding those affected by cancer toward a better understanding of diagnosis and care. Cancer Navigators is unique in the services it provides and there is not another organization in our high poverty region where cancer patients can receive the following collection of free assistance: social support (completing insurance, healthcare, and financial support applications and researching patient grants), counseling, nutrition assistance, transportation assistance, medical supplies, wigs, caps, hats and stress management support.
Cancer Navigators serves over 1,300 cancer patients annually, and strives to adequately meet cancer patients’ basic needs, relieve stress, increase chances of survival, provide hope, enhance quality of life, and ensure no one in our community journeys through cancer alone.
