Caring People, Fighting Cancer

Countless families and friends have been affected by a breast cancer diagnosis. The fear these women and men face of the unknown is only heightened when combined with costs of treatment, travel, and navigating their new world. That’s why at Lee Health’s Cancer Institute we’ve turned October into HOPETOBER, a month dedicated to giving hope to breast cancer patients. 

Lee Health's Cancer Institute joins other top-tier cancer treatment centers in offering complementary therapies and services to cancer care that can reduce anxiety, stress, neuropathy, nausea, insomnia, pain and weight changes. Through the Cancer Institute, those in Southwest Florida do not have to leave home and the support of family and friends to receive the world-class care they need and deserve during their fight against cancer.

It takes many specialists and support staff to fight breast cancer. That is why the Lee Health Cancer Institute offers a comprehensive care program, complete with oncologists, nurse navigators, a dietician, genetics counselor and more. The certified and dedicated team designs treatment programs that exceed national survivorship rates through a compassionate and collaborative experience.
