Cancer Survivorship Program

The Cancer Survivorship Program is specifically designed for patients who have completed their initial treatment for cancer. At this point, patients find they need different forms of support than while they were in active treatment.

In the first year following treatment, many patients find themselves wondering:

  • Now what do I do?
  • Who will have time to answer my questions?
  • How do I make sure I continue the appropriate care?
  • Will there be venues to update me on the latest findings reported in the news? How do these discoveries apply to me?
  • How should I expect to feel in the upcoming years?

The Cancer Survivorship Program has been designed to address these questions, provide resources and enable patients to focus on their path to recovery.

Every month, a survivorship lecture is offered. These lectures are open to all cancer patients and their family members. Past lectures have included topics such as coping with uncertainty, movement, nutrition, yoga and sexuality after cancer.
