Virtual Support Services

Virtual Support Services

In addition to medical care, Siteman Cancer Center offers an array of support services to our patients. Such services include support groups, pet therapy, therapeutic horticulture, nutritional support and exercise classes. Due to Covid-19 safety restrictions, many of these services have not been able to take place in-person. To continue supporting our patients on their journey, we have reshaped many of our services into a virtual format.

Musical Relaxation

Mary Sutherland’s Classical Renditions

Mary Sutherland is a volunteer musician who plays for patients and caregivers at our Siteman facilities. Due to COVID-19 safety restrictions, Mary hasn’t been able to play for our patients in person for most of the year. Knowing how much people benefit from the healing power of music, Mary has sent us these videos of her beautiful renditions of several classical melodies. We hope you enjoy this peaceful moment of beautiful music.

Horticultural Therapy

Missouri Botanical Garden Journey to Well Being Tours

We have partnered with Missouri Botanical Garden to bring the Journey to Well Being walking tours to you in a virtual format. The Journey to Well-Being is an intentional walking program, encouraging participants to slow their pace while paying particular attention to natural elements. This virtual version is designed to allow the same type of experience for people from afar. Our hope is for you to benefit from taking this time to slow your pace for a few minutes and connect with the serenity of the Japanese Garden.
