The Role of the Chaplain in Cancer Treatment

Last Modified: January 7, 2013

Question:

When I was in the hospital for lung cancer surgery and then with complications of treatment, I had a wonderful chaplain who provided me great support. I am glad to see a chaplain on your panel and would like to hear her thoughts on her role with the person with cancer. Also wondering, how many hospitals/cancer centers have chaplains available? Not everyone has a spiritual home to call on for support.
