​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Onward: The Survivorship Journey

In the Unite​d States today, there are more than 16 million cancer survivors. Thanks to dedicated scientists and researchers, the number is growing daily. At Baylor Scott & White Health, we seek to meet the needs of this unique patient population—to make the life saved a life worth living to its fullest. In 2017, we launched Onward: The Survivorship Journey, an oncology survivorship program, to bring together a multidisciplinary team of clinical oncology professionals to help patients and their families navigate the cancer jou​​rney after treatment ends. ​

After cancer treatment, patients continue to experience personal fears, family concerns, financial worries and medical treatments. Our program uses innovative and integrative methods that promote overall patient wellbeing because healing is a body, mind and spirit collaboration.

  • The Behavioral Health Oncology Service helps cancer patients manage common cancer-related physical, emotional and behavioral health challenges
