L.I.F.E. Survivorship Program
L.I.F.E — the survivorship program at Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center – ensures that every patient and family member touched by cancer is supported throughout their cancer journey by our multidisciplinary team.
The L.I.F.E. Program provides support services to all cancer survivors, including:
How We Can Help
Advances in early detection and cancer treatment have resulted in more people surviving cancer after diagnosis and living longer. With this progress it has been discovered that life during and after cancer treatment can present many unique physical, emotional, cognitive, relationship, and financial issues for cancer survivors. These issues may occur in the first five years after treatment, and some could occur even later. Here at Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center we strive to understand the many different ways a cancer diagnosis can impact one’s life, and work towards reducing the burden of cancer.
Our survivorship and supportive services program aims to improve our patients quality of life by providing a variety of cancer support services and resources that address the new, and sometimes overwhelming, needs that cancer survivors often experience through and beyond cancer treatment.

L.I.F.E. Survivorship Clinics
The Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center’s L.I.F.E. Survivorship Clinics deliver long-term follow-up for cancer survivors supporting them throughout their lifetime. The clinics are integrated within and overseen by the Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center’s oncology teams. In addition to cancer surveillance, the clinic aims to provide education on wellness principles to empower survivors through knowledge focused on nutrition, exercise, stress management, healthy sleep patterns, and much more to help patients achieve the best possible health outcome and quality of life after cancer treatment.

Life After Cancer Program
The Baptist MD Anderson Cancer Center’s L.I.F.E. Survivorship Program offers several resources and services to our cancer survivors of any type of cancer. Many patients find themselves wondering, “Now what?” after their cancer treatment ends.
The Life After Cancer services provides support and education to both patients and caregivers that will help them navigate the challenges people often experience after completing cancer treatment while helping them get back to “life” after cancer treatment and find their new norm.

Theodosia Yevette Edwards, colon cancer survivor
Edwards said she was hesitant to share her cancer diagnosis and treatment journey with people because she didn’t know what was to come. Now, she hopes her story will inspire others.
