Dialysis and Cancer Patients Displaced By Harvey Seek Care

Publication: KXAS-TV (NBC), Dallas

Right now, one of the most pressing medical needs in the wake of Harvey is getting people to dialysis and cancer treatment. Texas Oncology is working to deliver care to evacuees in need. In a statement, Texas Oncology says, "in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, we are concerned about the needs of all cancer patients impacted by this devastating storm. With the availability of some healthcare facilities disrupted in the near term, and potentially longer term relocations of coast area residents, patients may need interim treatment and care options."

Dr. Lalan Wilfong of Texas Oncology - Presbyterian Cancer Center Dallas said "Just undergoing cancer is stressful for people, so being displaced from their homes, in cities they're not familiar with and providers who aren't accustomed to seeing them, they need a lot of support and care."
