Ongoing Support for Cancer Patients and Survivors
Millions of Americans are living with a personal history of cancer, and that number continues to grow each year. Whether you are in the midst of cancer treatment or celebrating remission, Loyola Medicine believes every cancer patient deserves compassionate care through diagnosis, treatment and beyond.
As a cancer survivor, your healthcare needs have been forever altered, and Loyola is committed to providing the specialized care necessary to help you bridge the gap between your oncologist and cancer team to your primary care physician. The first of its kind in the Midwest, the cancer survivorship program at the Loyola Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center is designed to help you transition from patient to survivor!
Why Choose Loyola for Cancer Survivorship?
A highly skilled, compassionate team staffs Loyola’s cancer survivorship program. Our mission is to provide you with information and recommendations for ongoing screenings and care. Regardless of the level of your healthcare needs, Loyola is committed to working with you to ensure that you receive the highest caliber follow-up care.
Loyola’s cancer survivorship program is staffed by a physician director, psychologist and nurse. In addition, our cancer patients have access to the Coleman Foundation Image Renewal Center, which provides you access to the following professionals:
- Genetic counselors
- Pastoral care
- Social workers
At Loyola, our goal is to improve the quality of your life following cancer treatment, and to empower you, your family and your caregivers through education and advocacy.
Ongoing care through Loyola is available to you whether or not you received your cancer care at Loyola. If you have undergone cancer treatment at Loyola, members of our staff will schedule an appointment in the cancer survivorship program for you. If you received cancer treatment elsewhere, and are new to Loyola, obtain a copy of your medical records and call 708-CAN-HELP (708-226-4357) to schedule an appointment.
