Survivorship and Healthy Living

Survivorship Program

Moving on to live a healthy, productive life after cancer begins at the time of diagnosis!  All patients diagnosed with Cancer at the Roger Williams Cancer Center receive a Survivorship Care Plan.  The care plan reviews the treatments you have already had, summarizing them, and helps you understand what needs you may have in the future.  Your plan is individualized and may include follow up imaging, regular visits and exams with your providers, screening and prevention of conditions that can affect post-cancer patients more than the general population, nutrition counseling or rehabilitation exercises.

Breast Health and BMT Survivorship Programs

Both the Bone Marrow Transplant and Breast Health Programs have survivorship programs and plans in place that are specific to these two types of cancer in order to best meet the needs of these special patient populations. To learn more, contact Anne Marie Mullaney at 401-456-2000 ext. 8880
