Survivorship is not only about successful cancer treatment; it is about living life fully. At the time of diagnosis, patients and their loved ones, are faced with uncertainty, loss, physical and emotional pain, and confusion over treatment options. However, once treatment has ended, many feel just as confused about the next step in their journey. The end-of-treatment transition is an opportunity to provide survivors with ongoing support, education and guidance in a structured environment. Bon Secours Cancer Institute is pleased to offer a program uniquely designed around the needs of the cancer survivor who has completed treatment.

Our patients will be provided:

  • An individualized survivorship care plan outlining diagnosis, treatment course, future follow-up and prevention recommendations to facilitate a healthy transition to the rest of their life
  • Evaluation of potential aftereffects of cancer and cancer treatments
  • Exercise referrals
  • Nutrition counseling and referral to a registered dietitian as needed
  • Continuing emotional support by survivorship staff and oncology navigators
  • Smoking cessation coaching and referral
  • Community resources
  • Educational programs
  • Local integrative therapies resources
  • A personalized action plan for healthy living
  • Ongoing support and education for this end-of-treatment phase
