1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. A cancer diagnosis is often a devastating experience that impacts every aspect of a person’s life. With advances in treatment and research, many people are surviving longer than ever before. But survival often introduces new and unexpected stress -- both immediate, and in the long-term.
The Cancer Survivorship Clinic is designed to promote physical, psychological, spiritual, and social well being for those diagnosed and living with cancer. The establishment of a permanent Cancer Survivorship Clinic will support patients from the moment of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.
Survivorship services will include:
- Individualized Survivorship Care Plans
- Coordination of all aspects of care
Immediate needs assessment and referrals
Support groups, and education for patients, caregivers, and providers
Completely eliminating stress after a cancer diagnosis and its treatment is beyond anyone’s control, but with your help, we can significantly improve the quality of life for patients and their loved ones in our region.
Our goal is to raise over $115,000 to create a permanent Cancer Survivorship Clinic at Providence Regional Cancer System.
