Life after cancer
More than ever, cancer is a disease that people survive. From the day we meet you, your survivorship is the goal we have in mind as we develop and deliver your personalized treatment plan. Once your treatment is complete, we’re here with the follow-up care and support services to build your health and help you live your life to the fullest in every way.
As the personal stories of cancer survivors will tell you, our patients not only survive, but they also go on to lead active, healthy lives often with newfound perspective and sense of purpose. Many want to reach out and help other cancer patients, and you'll find many ways to do so right here.
Life after cancer
Fighting cancer can be a journey for a lifetime. When you’re putting your energy and focus into getting treatment and getting better, it’s natural not to be thinking too much about what life will be like afterward. But survivors today can find everything they need to stay healthy and tackle the physical and emotional challenges that come after cancer.
At the Providence Cancer Center, we'll help you with a variety of resources that help you regain your strength, your well-being—your life. Long after your treatment is complete, our care and support keep making a difference.
Follow-up care: building your strength and staying healthy
Completing your cancer treatment is a major milestone. But at the Cancer Partnership, our care for you goes beyond your treatment because we know there’s even more we can do to help you build your strength and health.
Once you’ve finished your treatment here, your doctor and care team will create a follow-up care plan. This plan will include the regular follow-up visits so important to monitoring your health and giving you time to ask any questions.
Getting strong after cancer treatment is not only a physical experience. As in most difficult experiences in life, you may come out of this one looking at the world differently. Many patients find our counseling services or spiritual care to be a tremendous help in re-entering, and often redefining, “everyday life.” Your care team may suggest these and other support services as part of your follow-up care plan.
Living a healthy lifestyle
The Cancer Center offers a wide range of resources to help rebuild your health, energy and well-being as you move into life beyond cancer. All of these resources are available to you, and, due to the generous donations of our community, many of them are free. Your care team at the Cancer Center may suggest some of these support services to you as part of your personalized follow-up care. Click here to view a full list of our support services.
New Connections Newsletter
The American Cancer Society’s New Connections Newsletter is a wealth of current information on cancer, patient and support programs—including ways you can make a difference in the fight against cancer. The newsletter is tailored to fit your needs, whether you are receiving treatment for cancer, a cancer survivor, or a caregiver.
A little prayer goes a long way
Everyone draws on different resources during and after cancer treatment. For many patients, spiritual resources are an important part of their experience.
The chaplain at the Providence Cancer Center is here to help you through any emotional or spiritual aspects of your treatment. Professionally trained and board-certified , our chaplain is a great listener who will do everything possible to support you and your family regardless of your religious beliefs. We strongly believe in respecting the cultural and spiritual diversity of those we serve.
