According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 1,658,370 people will be diagnosed with cancer this year, while another 589,430 will die from the disease. Despite these alarming numbers, medical advances have led to more and more people living longer with no evidence of disease or with cancer as a chronic disease. In Southwest Washington, Providence Health and Services is a leader in cancer treatment, committed to increasing survival time and high quality of life after a cancer diagnosis.

Since survivorship begins the day you are diagnosed and there are often challenges throughout the cancer journey, Providence Regional Cancer System Survivorship Support Services are a critical component of the comprehensive care we provide. We offer a broad range of services including education, counseling, physical rehabilitation, integrative care, social support, spiritual care and more.

Through support, education and comprehensive, compassionate care, Providence’s Survivorship Support Services help improve the quality of life for patients and their families during — and after — cancer.

The ongoing programming we provide is available to help patients and families better understand cancer and cope with the emotional and physical changes that can occur during and after treatment.
