Cancer Coaches

What is a Cancer Coach?

The role of a cancer coach is to partner with the patient to help them throughout their cancer journey. A cancer coach will help the client to learn about evidence-based integrative approaches that could help them during their cancer journey.

As a well-rounded resource for cancer patients, AltCare embraces the role of the cancer coach. To wit, cancer coaches work independently, not for a hospital or cancer center, which means that health insurers do not cover their fees.

Cancer coaches tend to enter their line of work because of personal experience with the disease, either as a patient or caregiver. Some coaches offer guidance through the entire journey, from diagnosis and treatment to survivorship.

These coaches are a lifeline for patients and often are the bridge between mentally and physically choosing to fight for their lives.

Often, patients who want to hire a cancer coach must do their own research and go with their gut. A good way to start: AltCare’s list of preferred partners.
