Survivorship Resources

Our cancer survivorship services help provide you with the spiritual and emotional support you need after completing your treatment. The survivorship support groups offered at St. Francis Cancer Treatment Center are designed to help you adjust to life after cancer, and connect you with other survivors.

From Surviving to Thriving
This is a support group designed to help those dealing with life after completing cancer treatment. Surviving cancer is a life experience that needs to be shared and understood. From Surviving to Thriving is designed to provide cancer survivors with opportunities for increased support and education. Those attending will also learn about the resources available to improve quality of life. All cancer survivors are encouraged to attend this support group. From Surviving to Thriving meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 3 p.m. in the Telehealth Conference Room, 2nd Floor of the Memorial Health Center, 2116 West Faidley Avenue.

A Time to Heal
A Time to Heal is a 12-week holistic rehabilitation program designed to help people regain their physical, emotional and spiritual health after cancer treatment.

Men and women who have completed surgery and chemotherapy and/or radiation for a first diagnosis of cancer are eligible. People with additional serious health issues may not be eligible. Each participant may bring a family member or friend to participate.

People who participate in this program receive helpful information about healing, training in coping skills such as relaxation, and opportunities to ask questions and share insights with the facilitators, expert faculty and other survivors. As a result, they may feel better emotionally and physically.

St. Francis Cancer Treatment Center also offers A Time to Heal classes that are exclusively for breast cancer survivors.

A Time to Heal was developed by Dr. Stephanie Koraleski and Dr. Kay Ryan of Omaha, Neb. The program is facilitated locally by Mary Ann Kalinay,MS, LMHP; Connie Hameloth, RN; Courtney Fuller, RN, OCN;Eileen Van Pelt, RN; Valerie Consbruck, LMHP; and Ashley Wissing, MS.
