Hearst Cancer Resource Center

Here at the CICC, we affiliate ourselves closely with the Hearst Cancer Resource Center (HCRC), located on the 2nd floor of French Hospital.  The director, Bev Kirkhart is a breast cancer survivor herself and is fully dedicated to helping our patients along their cancer journey.

We strongly encourage each patient to consult the HCRC, and specifically the Nurse Navigator, Michelle Ellis, directly after their first visit with us in order to take advantage of their vast and amazing services.

Their services include:

  • Nurse Navigator: A trained nurse to help the patient navigate screening needs and the different treatment options. Through this highly-skilled individual, the patient and their family can find not only information, but an important source of support.  For more information, call Michelle Ellis, RN at (805)543-5353 ext 7077 or email
  • Social Services and Support Programs: offering one-on-one counseling, family counseling, and financial counseling, specializing in insurance matters and pharmaceutical reimbursement.
  • Nutritional Coaching: Available to help patients' overall well-being at any stage of treatment
  • Alternative Practices: Aid holistic well-being and relaxation including Lymphedema prevention, guided imagery, stress management, art and music therapy, reiki, and yoga.
  • Appearance Center: Helps all cancer patients find the resources they need to look and feel their best.  Products available include wigs, make up, and resources for prostheses and clothing.
  • Spiritual and Therapeutic Social Activities: Encourage patients and families to strengthen their supportive base within the community.
  • Educational and Lecture Series: Presented by medical professionals specializing in cancer care.
  • Multimedia Education Library: Gives patients access to health databases that contain information about medical conditions, treatment options, nutrition, pain management, stress reductions, relaxation, as well as books and videos.
