Cancer Resource Center
The Cancer Resource Center at Baptist Health Louisville is a free walk-in, call-in center for people who want to know more about the various types of cancer and treatment of them. If the news of a cancer diagnosis feels overwhelming, or if the treatment options seems confusing, a visit or call to the Cancer Resource Center might be useful.
Resources in the Center include a lending library of books, video tapes, audio tapes, CD-ROMs and a selection of free brochures on the various types of cancer. Topics include: Prevention, Coping and Inspiration, Cancer Diagnosis, Grief, Humor, Risk Reduction (such as smoking cessation), Treatment and Technology, Screening, Death and Dying, Food and Nutrition, Guided Imagery and Relaxation, Mind and Body, Survivorship, Specific Types of Cancer (such as: colon, breast) and Genetics.
Assisted on-line searches with links to the Internet, Oncolink, National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society are available. The Center also has information on other cancer resources in the Louisville area.
The Center is staffed by an experienced oncology nurse and Friend for Life volunteers. Friend for Life is a local cancer support network that links newly diagnosed cancer patients with cancer survivors.
The Cancer Resource Center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. The Center is located on the first floor of the 4007 Kresge Way Building (white brick building at the corner of Kresge Way and Browns Lane across from the hospital).
