Survivorship

Cindi Davis fought hard to beat breast cancer and then she found the help she needed to enjoy life again through Virginia Hospital Center's Cancer Survivorship programs.

As you complete cancer treatment, you'll benefit from the survivorship program in the Cancer Resource Center. Enjoy free classes, workshops and support groups that focus on:

  • Monitoring your health and preventing cancer recurrence
  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight with good nutrition
  • Managing side effects of treatment
  • Dealing with concerns about sexuality and intimacy
  • Addressing your emotions after finishing treatment

Join staff, fellow survivors and new friends to drink tea, color or discuss a good book. Participate in a cooking class together, or knit a cozy scarf. You'll also want to attend an annual Survivorship Party for an evening of dinner, dancing and fun with your family and fellow survivors.
