Celebrating every cancer survivor
Our hospital celebrates every cancer survivor. After cancer treatment has ended, the patient often has completely new issues facing him or her. Our education center and support staff are available to teach how to use proper nutrition, exercise and to give emotional support while the patient is recovering. When treatment ends, new instruction is given for the recovery process.
As with any major illness, recovery can be a long process. It’s important to seek help when necessary and find comfort in family, friends and fellow survivors. The Cancer Center at McKay-Dee participates in several events throughout the year celebrating survivorship and raising awareness about cancer. These events are created especially for current patients, survivors, and their families.
Celebrate Cancer Survivors Day and participate in our Relay for Life.
Information such as patient demographics, type of cancer, duration, treatment success and survivorship are all reported to the National Cancer Database.
