Living Well, Being Well; A Lifestyle for Cancer
The Cancer Wellness Program at the Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment
is an important part of the comprehensive cancer care continuum. Our wellness
team is passionate about improving and sustaining the health and well-being
of our patients.
The Cancer Wellness Program addresses the “Four Pillars of Wellness”
and their relationship to cancer.
Each pillar is intended to help reduce the risk of developing another
cancer, decrease the chance of recurrence and increase survival rates.
The program is designed for cancer patients who have completed acute cancer
care and entering into the survivorship phase of their lives. Each patient
receives an evaluation and an individualized wellness care plan to support
their overall health and well-being.
Bridging the Gap to Wellness
Our wellness team is equipped to help patients transition from a focus
on cancer treatment to engaging in lifestyle activities that lead to a
well-balanced, healthy and vibrant life. With years of experience, our
wellness experts have developed strategies to inspire and educate patients
on how best to overcome any obstacles, address their personal challenges,
and reevaluate their personal goals as they balance essential wellness
and lifestyle practices that contribute to their physical, emotional,
spiritual and mindful well-being.
The Cancer Wellness Program offers:
- One-to-one evaluations and wellness sessions
- A sustainable individualized wellness plan designed with each patient’s
priorities, vision, needs and goals to improve their overall health and
- Bimonthly “well-check” sessions to provide encouragement, support
and guidance through the wellness plan.
- Individualized circuit exercise training and access to group exercise classes
