Cancer Survivorship Resources

If you had cancer, you might benefit from survivorship support because:

  • you feel like no one in your world understands what it is like to have experienced cancer treatment.
  • you have completed treatment but cancer is still on your mind.
  • you have questions about how your body feels post-treatment.
  • you are interested in learning about ways to best support your health.
  • you know your life has changed but you are still trying to understand the changes.

Know that WCRC offers programs to aid you in your survivorship: These programs include:

  • Support Groups – our groups are open to women diagnosed with any kind of cancer and different cancer stages, including cancer survivors.
  • Wellness Workshops – try one of our movement, creativity, and food-oriented workshops to support your physical and emotional wellness
  • Patient Navigation –  we have experienced patient navigators who can answer questions about life post-treatment, can consult with you before your next oncology appointment, and can debrief with after your appointment,
  • Information & Referral Helpline – call our Helpline when you have questions about community resources or receive regular check-in calls from volunteers
  • Volunteering – some of our volunteers are cancer survivors who support clients  that are currently in treatment or contribute to the WCRC community in other ways.
