Come and join the post-treatment cancer survivor community at Lawrence Hospital Center. Services are offered free of charge and are available to anyone who has finished treatment, even if your treatment for cancer was received outside of the Lawrence Hospital Center network.
A cancer survivor has traditionally been defined as anyone diagnosed with cancer beginning at the day of diagnosis. Spouses, other family members, friends and caregivers are often included in the definition because the diagnosis of cancer affects many more people than the person who is diagnosed.
Services provided by the Cancer Survivorship Program at Lawrence include the creation of a Cancer Treatment Summary and; in collaboration with the survivor, a Post-treatment Cancer Survivorship Plan of Care that provides individualized guidance for:
- Health Promotion
- Prevention of Cancer and other Diseases
- Management of Symptoms including Fatigue, Pain, Anxiety, Depression, Cognitive Impairment and Peripheral Neuropathy
- Appropriate Surveillance for Cancer and other Health Problems
After a Cancer Survivorship consultation, nurse practitioner, Shirley Stagner, is available for phone and/or in-person consultation as needed. If you or someone you know has finished treatment for cancer and would like to learn more, please contact Ms. Stagner at 914-787-4115.
