Survivorship Program

A survivor by dictionary definition is a person who survives – who continues to function or prosper in spite of opposition, hardship or setbacks. This is why, at the W. Temple Webber Cancer at CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System, a person becomes a cancer survivor upon diagnosis, not when the treatment is finished.

CHRISTUS St. Michael offers a Survivorship Program to help patients prepare for and achieve a higher quality of life while fighting cancer. When patients are first diagnosed with cancer, the physical, psychosocial, nutritional and other needs are identified when treatment is first initiated to keep the patient at optimum health during and after treatments.

Once needs are outlined, Yolanda Bone, DNP, RN, ARNP, FNP-BC, Nurse Practitioner and Survivorship Program Manager, can direct patients to appropriate resources to meet those needs. Whether the survivor needs physical therapy at the CHRISTUS St. Michael Outpatient Rehabilitation Center or nutritional counseling with a dietician, focusing on being healthy in the beginning will allow for more strength and endurance through the continuum of cancer care.

Even when you first go in and feel so bad, they get you comfortable and are so accommodating. They truly are like family.

Shanon's Story

The treatment I received here is comparable to or better than anywhere else because of the one-on-one treatment. I am thankful for the Cancer Center, surgery, ICU and nursing floor staff that cared for me throughout this journey. From my experience working in the medical field as an RN/paramedic for most of my life, I don’t think I could have received better care anywhere else.
