Many people are beating cancer these days, but sometimes the treatment used to get rid of cancer causes new problems, often called “late effects.” The Seton Cancer Survivor Center works to address any late effects you may experience.
To help with your life after cancer treatment, a nurse navigator will create a summary of your cancer treatment and a survivorship care plan for the future, including everything you need to stay as healthy and active as possible. Our nurse navigation services are provided free of charge.
The nurse navigator will make sure you have a doctor that looks for any return of your cancer, any new cancer, and make sure to take care of any late effects that you may experience. If you already have a doctor, we will work with that doctor to make sure they know all about your cancer treatment history and your survivorship care plan.
We offer a specialized clinic for cancer survivor care, annual patient summits that provide education and fun on many survivorship topics, links to community resources, patient social groups, as well as connections to diet and exercise programs.
We know that life after cancer is never the same, but the Seton Cancer Survivor Center is here to help.
A nurse navigator helps you manage the medical system. Sometimes patients have other things going on in life that get in the way of medical care, problems like not having insurance, or not knowing what kind of doctor to go to or which test to get. The nurse navigator helps with all these problems that keep you from staying healthy.
The nurse navigators at the Seton Cancer Survivor Center specialize in and study the problems cancer survivors face. The nurse navigators work for you to help you stay as healthy as possible after your cancer treatment. The nurse navigators provide education, coordinate care, and serve as a trusted partner in your health care.
