Survivorship

The Baptist Network for Cancer Care knows that the end of your treatment is not the end of your journey. Completing cancer treatment can be a difficult transition for many patients, that’s why we created a survivorship program just for you. This specialized clinic provides the resources you need to live the healthiest life after treatment possible. Survivorship offers information on wellness, support services, cancer surveillance and prevention, and can help you recognize and cope with any delayed side effects and late effects of treatment.
