Cancer SurvivorCare

CONGRATULATIONS!

You have completed your cancer treatment and likely have a new outlook on life.

We know there is a sense of comfort meeting regularly with your healthcare team at Illinois CancerCare, P.C.

We also realize being a post-treatment cancer survivor brings a new set of questions and uncertainty as you continue your cancer journey. It’s our goal to make life after cancer the best it can be.

Our Cancer SurvivorCare program is about more than surviving cancer. It’s about individualized care that will follow you the rest of your life by connecting you with a team of clinical experts specializing in post cancer treatment and qualified to address concerns you may have.

Personalized Care

With this program, you will receive the same personalized, comprehensive, high-quality care you received during your cancer treatment. As you transition from active treatment to the next steps in your cancer journey, it’s about living a new normal with an informed, all-inclusive approach to your health and quality of life.

We created the Cancer SurvivorCare program because we know for survivors and their loved ones, the cancer journey extends beyond cancer treatment. At Illinois CancerCare, we are always looking for new ways to improve your physical and emotional health.

Our approach to Cancer SurvivorCare is based on a true partnership between the survivor and their healthcare team. Once your cancer treatment is complete, you will continue to see your oncologist. When you are comfortable and your oncologist feels you are ready, you will meet with our Cancer Survivorship specialist. This physician has a great relationship with your oncologist. They will work together to ensure you continue to receive the care you need exactly when you need it.
