CAN-HELP Cancer Information Service

Our Loyola CAN-HELP Cancer Information Service is staffed by experienced oncology nurses who provide the following:

  • Information to callers about cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment and our specialty clinics. Based on your diagnosis, you will be scheduled in an appropriate clinic, which may include one of our five multidisciplinary clinics.
  • CAN-HELP will connect you with a research nurse who can provide you with information on clinical trials available at the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center.
  • Assistance to callers, both patients and referring physicians, who want to make an initial appointment for themselves or a patient with a physician in the cancer center. CAN-HELP helps patients coordinate what they need to bring for their initial appointment and can refer patients to financial services for information before their appointment.
  • Information about support groups for cancer patients and their families both at Loyola and in the community.

The phone number for Loyola's CAN-HELP Cancer Information Services is (708) CAN-HELP, or  (708) 226-4357. CAN-HELP's hours of operation are from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. An after-hours message center will take your information and assure that your call is returned the next business day.
