Connection, Education and Empowerment
You’re not on this journey alone. From the moment you’re diagnosed, our cancer survivorship team is by your side with programs and support groups designed just for you.
We’ll help you feel connected, educated and empowered throughout treatment and as you transition to life after cancer. Explore the benefits of our cancer survivorship programs below and learn how to join.
Cancer Survivorship Programs
Take our integrative care course before or during your cancer treatment. Our online or in-person class teaches you to relax, imagine your own healing and thrive during treatment.
We offer courses tailored to chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation treatment and surgery to give you the information most relevant to your treatment plan.
Contact your cancer center to learn more about in-person course availability.

My Cancer Survivor Mentor
Someone else who’s been through cancer can help you like no one else. Get to know a survivor mentor for support from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.
You’ll partner with a mentor whose journey closely matches your own. When pairing mentors and patients, we consider age at diagnosis, cancer stage, anticipated treatment plan and your personal concerns.
Contact your oncology clinic to learn more about the program or enroll through our self-referral form.

Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery
A cancer diagnosis impacts everyone in a patient’s life – especially their family. Parents with cancer are often concerned about how to talk to their children about their diagnosis. CLIMB® can help.
CLIMB® is a free, six-week support program designed for children and teens who have a close family member with cancer. The CLIMB® Program was founded by the Children’s Treehouse Foundation.
