With the addition of new and improved medical technology leading to earlier cancer diagnoses and better treatments of most cancers, more people diagnosed with cancer are living and surviving. At Lourdes, we know that the end of treatment is not the end of the cancer experience. And, that's why we've started a Survivorship Program.
Lourdes Survivorship Program is designed to create a bridge for continued care of post-treatment cancer survivors back to the community, family and primary care setting. The program provides support for the physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and financial issues that people recovering from cancer face.
The Survivorship Program goals were established following our staff's attendance at the City of Hope's Survivorship Program. The City of Hope is a National Cancer Institute-sponsored cancer program. Lourdes was selected to participate through a competitive application process.
Living Well Series
Lourdes now offers monthly seminars through our Living Well Series. These seminars provide information and answer questions survivors and their loved ones may have. Topics include stress management, nutrition, exercise, and much more. Living Well seminars are held the fourth Wednesday of the month at 5:30 PM in the Lecture Hall at Lourdes Hospital, main floor.
