Memorial Hermann defines cancer survivorship as beginning the day of a cancer diagnosis. If you have just been diagnosed with cancer, are currently going through treatment or have completed primary treatment, you are a cancer survivor. Whether the long-term or ongoing effects are physical, spiritual or psychosocial, the survivorship journey is different for everyone.
Becoming a cancer survivor is a major event in the cancer journey, and for many it brings with it the chance for growth, positive change and a chance to live a healthier life. However, once treatment is finished and you are adjusting to reentering the world, you might feel alone and lost without the support of your cancer care team. At Memorial Hermann, care for people with cancer does not end when treatment does. Once cancer treatment ends, you will continue to see your healthcare team, who will monitor you to ensure you remain healthy. You can rest assured that the Memorial Hermann cancer team is here for you every step of the way, long after you’ve finished your treatment.
At Memorial Hermann we understand a cancer diagnosis can make you feel alone, and we therefore recognize how crucial it is to have support during this time. We have therefore created a closed Facebook group for patients and their families to both connect with each other, and receive insight, comfort and friendship.
