SHINE Wellness Program
Strength. Hope. Inspiration. Nutrition. Exercise.
S.H.I.N.E On! is a free innovative wellness program for cancer survivors and patients on their journey toward survivorship while they are undergoing treatment – whether it’s surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or any other form of care.
The program is highly individualized and coordinated to boost the healing process and enrich the lives of patients in treatment or who have survived cancer. It includes:
- Emotional support
- Nutrition workshops
- Cooking demonstrations
- Fitness and exercise programs
Participants can choose events to attend. All events are hosted by experts from across Baylor Scott & White Health – North Texas, including registered dietitians, fitness specialists, nurses and others.
Why You Should S.H.I.N.E On!
The support cancer patients and survivors gain through the program, as well as the opportunity to develop relationships with others who have gone through or who are going through a similar experience, can have a tremendously positive impact on their outlook and cancer journey.
We offer advanced treatments today, and conduct clinical trials that may lead to even better treatments tomorrow.
For example, one study is currently underway that uses a patient’s own cancer cells to personalize chemotherapy. This may allow patients to better withstand treatment with less sickness and discomfort.
In 2015, approximately six percent of our patients were included in clinical trials and research studies. By taking part, you can:
- Help the medical community discover new, better treatments
- Have the satisfaction of aiding in progress against disease
- Receive the most recent information and evidence-based care from our experts
In partnership with the Baylor Scott & White Research Institute and local physician practices, Baylor Scott & White – McKinney can aid you in finding the right clinical trial.
