Cancer Services is enhancing health, life and survivorship!
Chances are you or someone you love will face cancer in their lifetime. Cancer patients and their families need more than treatment, they need hope and community. Cancer Services is the Triad’s community of caring for people facing cancer and their families. With a mission of enhancing health, life and survivorship, the agency works closely with health teams at both Novant Health Derrick L. Davis Cancer Center and Wake Forest Baptist Health Comprehensive Cancer Center to ensure the needs of those with any type of cancer are met.
Cancer Services’ community outreach team works to decrease health disparities by providing life giving education on healthy living for cancer risk reduction.
Up to 40% of cancers could be avoided if Americans ate nutritious diets, were physically active on a daily basis and maintained a healthy weight. Our community outreach team provides cooking programs and active living classes for at-risk groups in our area.
Cancer Services strives to improve the quality of life during cancer treatment by addressing urgent needs to access cancer care. Our Patient Advocate Team diligently works to find help to pay for life saving medication, offers an appearance boutique with wigs, hats and prostheses, and helps provide hospital equipment and other needed resources, all at no charge.
Cancer Services works to optimize health after a diagnosis of cancer. Living after such a diagnosis can be a challenge emotionally and physically. Our community of cancer survivors enjoy educational sessions that share the most up-to-date and evidence-based information on optimizing survivorship. Survivors participate in social support, nutrition programs and active living encouragement. We deliver these in person, and through our online survivorship website – cancerdietitian.com.
