Social Work Assistance

Rebecca Light, Social Worker

Cancer affects more than just the physical well-being of a patient. It also has a strong emotional impact that reaches well beyond the patient and into the lives of family and friends. At Lancaster Cancer Center, we recognize the need to treat the whole patient, which is why we offer an on-site social worker to provide compassionate support to those in need.

Our social worker, Rebecca Light is dedicated to assisting patients with their cancer related needs. She helps patients with advance directives, transportation and patient finance needs, as well as any other treatment related concerns. She is knowledgeable about supportive services such as palliative care, home health, and hospice, and can help guide families and patients to a service that best meets their needs. Rebecca will be assisting Mark Hite (licensed psychologist) facilitate The Healing Journey’s newly implemented support group entitled “Our Journey Together”.  Please refer to our website under ‘Foundation1 for more details regarding support group meeting times.

“I am dedicated to helping every patient in any way that I can”
