We’re here to give cancer patients the tools they need to survive – and thrive – mentally, physically and emotionally.
Through our survivor services, we provide one-on-one consultations with a specialized fitness trainer, dietitian, genetic counselor, social worker, physician assistant and clinical psychologist. These services are especially designed to help survivors develop a healthy lifestyle and reduce their future risk of cancer.
Plus, at our Fort Worth facility, most programs are provided at no cost no matter when you were diagnosed.
