Tres Hood Memorial Cancer Resource Center
What support groups are available for cancer survivors? Where can I buy a wig in Wichita Falls? What are the latest treatments for pancreatic cancer? What financial assistance can I receive for my medications?
The Tres Hood Memorial Cancer Resource Center on 5 West provides you with the tools necessary to find the answers to these and other needed information. The Center provides brochures, cancer-related books, medical reference books, video/audio tapes, children’s materials, and internet-accessible computers with links to evidence-based, reliable sources of cancer information.
After diagnosis, please visit the Center and receive a personalized packet of information relating to your specific type of cancer. Friends and family members will be able to browse hundreds of books and find the most cutting-edge information about treatment and recovery.
More than just a place for medical information, the Center also has information on various tools for coping with cancer:
- Art/music therapy
- Complementary alternative medicine
- Palliative care
- Relaxation techniques
- Symptom Management
- Uplifting stories of survival
The 1,000-square-foot facility offers a private conference room, as well as reading areas for patients and their families.
