Our oncology nurse navigator Lori Karajanis, RN, is the resource you need to help you throughout the continuum of care with oncology. Cancer care is a team approach including many medical specialists and areas of expertise to offer excellent care. Our oncology nurse navigator helps each patient understand their journey and is there to provide support in identifying gaps, barriers or needs along the way.
Our Breast Boutique is entirely complimentary, offering a selection of prescribed post-surgery products for women undergoing mastectomy, lumpectomy or reconstructive surgery. Included in the inventory are mastectomy bras, equalizer forms, and non-surgical breast prosthetics. In our newly renovated Breast Boutique, you will find the environment to be comfortable and welcoming as a specially trained RN fits you individually for the items that best fit your specific needs.
Call 307.674.6022 to schedule your private fitting consultation.
Complimentary wigs, scarves and hats are available within our resource center. Provided through generous donations, wig options are available in the resource room. Additional assistance with wig fittings, measuring and recommendations for wig care can be found in coordination with the nurse navigator and inside our resource room.

Beautiful Journey – currently not meeting due to COVID-19 Precautions
Beautiful Journey is an educational class offered quarterly to patients who desire to learn how to care for their changing needs in their skincare and beauty regimen. Collaborating with local specialists in oncology cosmetology, these volunteer cosmetologists will educate patients on products, tools and tricks to looking and feeling their best in their own Beautiful Journey.
A Shared Journey – currently not meeting due to COVID-19 Precautions
An adult cancer support group is open to those diagnosed with any type of cancer within any part of the cancer care process or recovery. A Shared Journey provides an opportunity to give and receive emotional support in a group setting with peers who have experienced like life events. It is a place to share, cope and build community for patients who have experienced any type of cancer diagnosis or care.
Financial & Medication Assistance
We understand that in addition to the emotional stress of having cancer and enduring a difficult illness, bearing a big financial burden is the last thing you want to think about. Our team of financial advocates work closely with the oncology care team to help you understand your insurance, eligibility for financial or co-payment assistance and the financial aspects of your care.
