Executive Director Message


StuartKlein.pngEven in tough circumstances, such as dealing with cancer, people have the remarkable capacity to adapt. We have a great team of professionals who help patients tap into their inner resilience. For those who move temporarily to Jacksonville for treatment, we provide practical advice such as where to find housing, grocery stores, pharmacies and even barber shops. To help patients ease their anxiety about treatment, we offer tours so they can see where treatment happens and understand what to expect. We have support groups and one-on-one counseling available so people can talk through their concerns and learn coping skills. And we have plenty of opportunities for people to mix and mingle and just forget about cancer for awhile. This aspect of our care is intentional to help make a positive difference in how patients experience proton therapy and in how they use their inner resources to adjust.
