Survivorship Program

With the individualized assistance of your oncology nurse navigator, you can get back to your life, work and family by learning to adapt to changes in your energy level and stamina, nutrition, and medications and the potential for lymphedema or swelling and fluid retention. Classes, support groups, educational resources and survivor events all help restore your quality of life.

Members of your care team work together to help you succeed in developing a plan for your ongoing health care. Whether your life returns to the way it was before your cancer diagnosis and treatment or you're facing a new normal that encompasses concerns about your physical and emotional health or finances, planning for your future helps you move forward productively.

Oncology Nurse Navigator

If you need further testing, a biopsy or counseling, our dedicated oncology nurse navigator will guide you along the way. The nurse navigator coordinates the scheduling services of our cancer care team and will work closely with you and your doctors so you'll know your options and receive the treatment, care, education and support you need.
