Cancer can be a challenging and demanding experience for you and your family. For many people, spirituality and/or faith provides a source of support and comfort in this time. Chaplains are an integral part of the healthcare team available to you and your family while you are receiving care through Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center in clinical affiliation with South Shore Hospital.
Who We Are
Chaplains from Dana-Farber/Brigham & Women’s Cancer Center in clinical affiliation with South Shore Hospital offer spiritual support for you and your family. Clinically trained chaplains are available to meet with you before, during and after treatment. In addition, community clergy of other faiths can be contacted at your request.
What We Do
Chaplains can speak with you and your family about spiritual as well as emotional and ethical matters. We provide prayer, sacred texts, sacraments, or worship services (mindfulness and guided meditation practice and/or tapes) that can be helpful to you. Devotional material in a variety of languages, rosaries, yarmulkes, electric Sabbath candles, prayer shawls, chemo caps, and prayer rugs are available upon request.
