Cancer Survivorship Program

Are you among the millions of adult Americans today living with a personal history of cancer? As a cancer survivor, your health-care needs have forever been altered by your cancer diagnosis. At Loyola, we believe you need specialized care to bridge the gap between your oncologist and primary care physician.

The Cancer Survivorship Program at the Loyola Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center in Maywood is open to address this need. Staff members in the program, the first of its type in the Midwest, provide you with recommendations for appropriate screenings and follow-up care.

Once you have completed complex cancer interventions — even if you are deemed low risk for cancer recurrence — you still may require more extensive support from health-care specialists. As our patient, you'll receive the best care for your distinct situation, no matter the degree of your health concerns.

In addition to the program's physician director, psychologist and nurse, you also will have access to social workers, genetic counselors, nutritionists and members of pastoral care. All of these services are available through the Coleman Foundation Image Renewal Center. Our goals are to improve the quality of your life following cancer and to empower you and your family members and caregivers through education and advocacy.

If you are a Loyola patient, we will schedule an appointment for you. If you received cancer treatment elsewhere, you will need to obtain a copy of your medical records. To schedule an appointment, please call (708) CAN-HELP (708-226-4357).
