Survivorship

Treating cancer personally is more than just medical care; it’s taking care of the whole person before, during and after treatment. We’re here to educate and support you as you return to living a cancer-free life.

Part of surviving cancer is moving on and having the best possible quality of life. Taking the time to learn how to take care of yourself and spending time with other survivors can be fun and rewarding. We have regularly scheduled events and activities to help our patients and families navigate through the physical, social and psychological effects of treatment. Topics include how to manage:

  • Fear of recurrence
  • Body image concerns caused by weight gain/loss during treatment
  • Intimacy problems caused by hormone changes
  • Stress/depression

The American Cancer Society has created an easy-to-read guide, Life After Treatment, to help cancer survivors and their loved ones understand the after-cancer journey. The National Cancer Institute also has a helpful and informative booklet, Facing Forward, Life After Treatment.
