SURROUNDING WITH CARE Survivorship Care
LIVING. INSPIRED. FULFILLED. ENCOURAGED.
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:
- Psychological services
- Pastoral care
- Social work
- Exercise programs
- Financial advocacy
- Art therapy
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. Our nurse practitioner engages and works with the patient and their family to develop a personalized treatment plan.
