Life After Cancer
Did you know? Cancer specialists and the National Cancer Institute call you a cancer survivor from the moment you are diagnosed with cancer. That’s because you and everyone involved in your care are all focused on providing the best care possible to optimize your chances for recovery.
At Siteman Cancer Center, our Survivorship Program focuses on maintaining a lifelong connection with all of our cancer patients so that you can embrace life to the fullest. This includes offering services that meet the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of you as our patient and your family or caregivers.
Our team in the Survivorship Program can link you to onsite or community resources, such as free counseling services and cancer support groups, or direct you to case managers who can assist with financial concerns. We also know about the possibility of lingering side effects after treatment, such as fatigue and memory loss, and can answer your questions about available options.
Need help in eating healthier or in quitting smoking? We can connect you to those resources, too. The important thing to realize is that we are here for you throughout your entire lifetime. You don’t have to face anxiety, questions or concerns alone. We’re here to help whenever you need us. Just call the Survivorship Program office at (314) 747-1792.
