Cancer Survivorship Program
Community Health Network's Survivorship Program provides awareness of recommended screenings, education on evidence-based lifestyle behaviors and assistance with any late and long-term side effects that may have resulted from cancer treatment. Preventive care is important during this time, and we empower you with the tools to succeed in this next step. The Survivorship Program keeps patients connected to their current cancer care team at Community while integrating the primary care physician. We offer a variety of additional resources and specialty care programs focused on improving the cancer survivor’s health and quality of life.
Thriving After Cancer
Survivorship begins from the day of diagnosis. However, it is when the active phases of your cancer treatment are complete that a new normal emerges. Community’s Survivorship Program is designed to support, guide and empower you in this next step of post-treatment life.
The Survivorship Program is an extension of care you have received throughout your cancer treatment journey. We begin by providing you with an "Oncology Treatment Summary" that contains the important details of your diagnosis and treatments received, as well as guidelines for ongoing monitoring by your cancer care team.
At Community, cancer survivors are at the core of our exceptional medical programs and specialty oncology support services:

Every patient has different needs at different times in their personal cancer journey. We encourage you to contact our team to help you in transition from active cancer treatment to thriving in survivorship. If you need personal assistance, please call us at 317-621-4961.
How Can I Help Others?
Many cancer survivors and their caregivers reflect back on their cancer journey experience and have a desire to give back in some way. Community Health Network Foundation offers opportunities to share your story, volunteer or donate. We encourage all of our cancer survivors to help empower others who may need emotional encouragement, support or financial assistance.
