At CTCA at Western Regional Medical Center (Western), you’ll meet other patients and their caregivers at classes that expand your knowledge on cancer-related topics.
As a patient at Western, you’ll also be able to become an active member of the Cancer Fighters® Program at CTCA. This popular program keeps patients who receive care at CTCA hospitals and facilities in touch with each other through an extensive online community, local events, regular updates and a monthly e-newsletter.
Furthermore, you’ll discover endless opportunities to connect with other people who share a common interest—fighting cancer. Online at CancerCompass®, you can exchange messages with fellow cancer fighters and their loved ones around the world. You can also access the latest news on cancer breakthroughs and receive a weekly e-newsletter that highlights cancer-related articles, features and announcements.
