As a caring community of hope, healing and empowerment, Canopy enhances the quality of life for individuals affected by cancer and for those who support them during their journeys. Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center is proud to introduce Canopy – a first-of-its-kind cancer survivorship center in the greater Houston area. At Canopy, there are a wide variety of programs and services addressing the emotional, physical and social needs of those touched by cancer.
The goal of Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center is to integrate a cancer survivorship center into the continuum of cancer care. Our strong community connection and compassionate support system make it possible for Canopy to provide programs geared towards improving the health and quality of life of cancer survivors post-diagnosis.
Canopy offers a wide variety of services for the community's cancer survivors and their caregivers, including:
Canopy is made possible by Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center and by philanthropic support through Memorial Hermann Foundation and Memorial Hermann In the Pink of Health.
At Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center, 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.
