Hi, I’m Amy. I will be your patient navigator guiding and supporting you throughout your treatment. I′ll provide all the information you need, so you know what to expect, every step of the way.

Stomach cancer care at North York General Hospital (NYGH), is provided through a multidisciplinary team approach. This involves a system of health care providers, clinics and services focused on stomach cancer patients and their families. This focus means that patients receive evidence-based care, following best practices in a multidisciplinary, collaborative environment. Here at NYGH, we offer a personalized approach through our patient navigator who will support you every step of the way.

At NYGH, we feel that survivorship is an important part of the cancer journey and we work to provide the best support and resources for you and your family. Our goal is for survivors and their families to attain their best quality of life and return to their community and lives.
