Survivorship & Supportive Services

Survivorship and Supportive Services Program

Founded and supported by The United Auxiliaries to Lancaster General Hospital

From the point of diagnosis through treatment and beyond, we provide support, education, and tools to empower patients and families on their cancer journeys. Our team can help you address the physical, emotional, and spiritual challenges you may face.

Cancer survivorship is most often defined as the process of living with, though, and beyond cancer. You are a survivor from the time of your cancer diagnosis through the balance of your life.

Survivorship: Building a new life

More people are surviving cancer more than ever before. As a result, planning for life after cancer is an important part of the journey.

Survivorship treatment summary and care plan: This detailed record summarizes your active cancer treatment; makes recommendations for follow-up care, testing and or examinations; and offers referrals for support services and other information pertinent to short and long-term survivorship care. This document is sent to your healthcare provider team, primary care provider, and kept in your medical record.

Patients can access OncoLink for additional information about survivorship: OncoLink offers a web-based cancer resource available through Penn Medicine. The site outlines long-term survivorship and follow-up care needs. You can access this site at www.oncolink.org.
