Cancer Survivorship and Wellness

Redirecting to our new, updated website ...

At Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, the focus on Survivorship and Wellness begins at the time of diagnosis and is designed to provide support through patient and family-oriented care before, during and after treatment. As a survivor, or caregiver of a survivor, regular follow-up care is important. Every cancer patient should have a personalized care plan including necessary cancer screenings and healthy lifestyle choices such as exercise and proper nutrition. At Roswell Park, we believe that patients and their caregivers will lead a healthy, active life after cancer, but we recognize that problems can develop as a result of treatment. Therefore, in addition to watching for cancer recurrence, we focus on identifying, preventing, and controlling any late or long-term effects of cancer. Mental and physical health are an essential component of recovery and Quality of Life. Thus, our personalized plans also include a range of complementary medicine approaches such as acupuncture, fertility counseling, massage therapy, mindfulness meditation and yoga to ensure that our patients and their caregivers travel the journey of Survivorship with a wide range of resources at their disposal.
