We understand that cancer is complicated, and there are many different types of cancer and ways of treating cancer. Your Valion Oncology Care Coordinator has extensive experience across all cancer types, treatments and has access to great resources to link you with the most relevant and helpful information to address your specific needs and side effects.
Research tells us that cancer-related fatigue is one of the most common and debilitating symptoms reported by patients. The majority of cancer patients report that fatigue adversely affects their ability to work (61%), interferes with their usual activities (51%) and interferes with their ability to take care of their families (42%).

We recognise that side-effects are very real and unique to your cancer experience, stage of life, and gender. Your side-effects will look very different depending on what stage of treatment or recovery you are at when you join the Valion Program.
We have the experience to support any level of side-effects whether it needs immediate management (acute) or is more persistent (latent effect), and help you to take a proactive approach to either prevent or reduce the risk of certain side-effects developing or persisting!
