Cancer Support Groups

Life after cancer can be an exhilarating experience. With information and a comprehensive support structure, infirmary Cancer Care is here to walk you through post-cancer life. Whether you are in remission or still battling the disease, we can help you through this journey.

Call (251) 435-2273 today for help and support.

Remission & Recovery

A person in remission means that there is “no evidence of disease.” This may mean that the cancer is gone for good, and the patient is fully recovered. Patients in remission should still get regular checkups and screenings to ensure healthiness and talk with their doctor about what they should do to stay healthy.

Coping with Long-term Side Effects

While the cancer may be gone, long-term side effects from the cancer and the treatments may remain. These can include physical, emotional and even social issues. Our trained staff can help you navigate and overcome these challenges to live life to the fullest.

Preventing Recurrence

Individuals who have recovered from cancer should get regular screenings to ensure early diagnosis if their cancer returns. Each cancer will have specific risk factors, so talk to your doctor about how you can specifically prevent the return of the disease. Healthy life habits such as a good diet, exercise, fitness and staying away from drugs and alcohol will decrease a patient's chances of the cancer recurring.

Cancer Support Groups

At Infirmary Cancer Care, we also understand that cancer care must be a holistic approach. This is why we created cancer support groups. These groups in Mobile and on the Gulf Coast are great ways for patients to learn from fellow patients and get their questions answered. With a supportive environment and discussions and talks on wide-ranging topics related to the cancer experience, cancer support groups provide you the holistic support you need to complete treatment. If you or a loved one is struggling with cancer or is at a very high risk of cancer, join a cancer support group for information and help.
