Cancer Survivorship Quick Tips

At Fairfield Medical Center, from the time you receive a cancer diagnosis forward, you are considered a survivor. Cancer and its treatments may have late or long-term effects, and recovery is not over when your treatment ends. Survivorship is a journey marked by resilience, courage and strength, but you don’t have to do it alone.

Financial concerns can be a major point of stress for survivors whether you’re actively going through treatment or finished. Fortunately, there are resources available to ease some of those concerns, including funding from the FMC Foundation and other organizations. Talk with your nurse navigator about your financial concerns. We will collaborate with our financial aid personnel to find payment options and assistance programs available to help you.

Physical activity can be a helpful way to improve your daily function and quality of life. We offer yoga classes for cancer survivors and one support person at our River Valley Campus, designed to help you reduce stress, improve mobility and add a little joy to your day. For more details about our yoga classes, please click here. We also offer physical therapy provided by our Outpatient Therapy Services team. To learn more about services offered by OPTS, click here.

Cancer survivorship is a journey that requires support, resources and resilience. Talk to your nurse navigator for resources that are available to fit your needs. We’re here to help you get back to living your life to the fullest.
