CONNECT WITH A CLINICIAN
NLMSF offers a patient support program allowing patients to ask general questions of experts who have graciously volunteered their time. They will provide generalized answers which are not meant to take the place of a patient’s own oncologist or oncology team care and guidance.
Questions sent through email will be kept confidential. You are welcome to use our Facebook page or group as well, though the response will not be private. Answers are designed to offer general support for further consultation with the patient’s care team.
To pose a question; send an email to [email protected] or utilize our Facebook page or group. Answers will be provided in the same manner as the question.
