Survivor Strength & Wellness
Coming in Fall 2018
The “Survivor Strength & Wellness” program offers patients a way to connect with others, strengthen their bodies and access organizational tools to record details that might otherwise be forgotten.
Group exercise, meetings with spiritual/religious counselors, tobacco cessation classes, art therapy, music therapy, massage therapy and other programs are designed to help patients heal fully. “Survivor Strength & Wellness” also offers Sarah Bush Lincoln Regional Cancer Center patients four months of sessions with personal trainers at the Center for Healthy Living. Trainers specialize in helping cancer survivors meet their health goals to regain their strength and remain cancer-free.
At the start of their cancer journeys, all patients receive a helpful, custom planner to help them navigate the cancer treatment process. Patients who prefer to use technology to document the treatment process can use a free app called the SBL Cancer Tool Kit. It enables patients to track appointments and treatment side effects, journal their experiences and find support.
Survivor Strength & Wellness is offered at no cost to Regional Cancer Center patients, thanks to the support of generous donors.
