Baylor Launches Call-In Cancer Support Service




The Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Baylor University Medical Center, a part of Baylor Scott & White Health has launched a new call-in telephone support group for women with gynecological cancer that meets from 1 to 2 p.m. on the first and third Wednesday of each month.

The group will be facilitated by a chaplain and a nurse, enabling women to call from their home or during a lunch break to receive encouragement, support and information. Those living in small communities away from group support will thus be able to share with other women on the same journey.

For more information, call Chaplain Sherry Shanks at 214-820-2335, email Sherry.Shanks@BSWHealth.org or call the Virginia R. Cvetko Patient Education and Support Center at 214-820-2608.
