The Cancer Center’s Story Project is an effort to capture stories from our community of patients, friends, family, clinicians, and staff who have been affected by cancer in some way. This is Natasha's Story.

  • Natasha Barthe is a patient service coordinator here at the Mass General Cancer Center.
  • "I see so many patients who freak out and I try to let them know it’s okay."

“I started here in January. I worked before with patients as a C&A with older patients. I wanted to switch to administrative. So since I’ve started here as an intern, this is new for me."

"We try so hard to make it easy for them (patients). I see so many patients who freak out and I try to let them know it’s okay.”
