Education & Events

Chesapeake Regional Healthcare sponsors a breast cancer support group that is open to newly diagnosed women as well as survivors. If you have breast cancer, you are not alone. We are here for you. At the meetings, women share concerns and exchange information. Health care professionals speak on topics of interest. Also, members will embrace, comfort, encourage and honor your courageous journey to fight cancer. The group meetings are facilitated by a breast cancer survivor and an oncology nurse. The group meets the first Thursday of each month from 7-8:30 p.m. at Chesapeake Regional's Lifestyle Center. Call 757-312-2232.

Patient Care Team

Know this: you are not alone. You're part of a team that knows just how to treat you. While technologically advanced equipment and on-site board-certified physicians and oncology-certified nurses help patients fight their cancer, another team of experts help patients focus on the emotional, financial and physical toll cancer can take. Surgeons, dieticians, clinical social workers, pain management specialists, a patient navigator and more work together to alleviate much of the stress and fear cancer can cause, enabling patients and their caregivers to focus on what matters most: getting better. Your doctors, nurses and the Breast Center staff are great resources.
