Cancer Supportive Care Service
It is important that every patient receives the care they deserve, and we at San Antonio Regional Hospital understand that a diagnosis of cancer rarely comes at a good time. Our cancer program offers the following financial programs to assist with your care.
Women Caring for Women
Women Caring for Women (WCW), is an outreach program designed to improve access to the exceptional breast health services offered by the Women's Breast and Imaging Center at San Antonio Regional Hospital. This program offers low or no-cost breast care services to both women and men who are low-income, uninsured and underinsured, and is funded by our generous donors.
These services include: 3-D Tomosynthesis mammography, ultrasound, breast MRI, and breast biopsies.
For more information about the application process, or other supportive services please contact the Breast Nurse Navigator at 909.920.6258 or click this link.
San Antonio Regional Hospital offers our $49.95 mammogram voucher for breast cancer screening from October 1 through December 31 each year. Vouchers are handed out at our community health events during the months of October-December or they can be found online on our website.

Oncology Nurse Navigator
Our Oncology Nurse Navigator (ONN) is a cancer specialist and she is available to assist you throughout your cancer diagnosis, cancer treatment, and into survival. We know how important it is to feel comfortable during your cancer journey and our ONN is here to help. Her primary focus is on your quality of life and providing you with a sense of control. The ONN can provide one-on-one education to you and your cancer caregiver about your cancer diagnosis, care options, and medical treatment plan so you can understand what’s happening and why. She can also help navigate through any financial barriers and connect you with resources such as transportation assistance to medical appointments or provide other cancer support services as needed.
