Having worked in the medical field for more than 30 years and having walked with family members diagnosed with cancer and go through the process of chemotherapy and radiation, Celeste realized the importance of the patient navigator program.

We are there to help patients in their time of need and to help answer their questions, serve as a liaison between their doctors and oncology offices.

Macy Allen

Macy Allen has been a part of the Patient Navigator team since 2014. She caringly guides patients through the health care system as she provides support throughout their cancer journey. Her favorite part about being a navigator is hearing the stories they share. Macy feels like each of these stories provides an insight to the lives of these warriors. She feels honored to a part of each patients life. They’re all fighting a battle and she hopes that she can offer a sense of peace for them in such an overwhelming time.
