  • Women's Cancer Survivorship Program: "I Am"

  • WMC SurvivorshipFrom the day a diagnosis of cancer is made, survivorship begins.

    “I Am,” the Women’s Medicine Collaborative cancer survivorship program, is an interdisciplinary, holistic model of care that addresses all facets of a woman’s quality of life.

    Our patients tell us: “I am a mother.” “I am a wife.” “I am a neighbor.” “I am a friend.”

    We recognize our patients as women living with cancer, and offer individualized care plans to optimize well-being and assist in recovery.

    Working in collaboration with the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Rhode Island Hospital and The Miriam Hospital, our multidisciplinary team of caring, experienced providers understands that women with cancer are more than their diagnoses.

    We provide a comprehensive evaluation and plan of care, including:

    • cancer treatment summary
    • recommendations for cancer surveillance and risk reduction strategies
    • vaccine therapy
    • nutrition counseling
    • exercise recommendations
    • lymphedema therapy
    • counseling for anxiety and depression
    • stress management strategies
    • genetic susceptibility assessment
    • answers to sexuality and reproductive concerns

    Our holistic, integrative approach also provides critical services to address a myriad of emotional, psychological and financial challenges.

    We help many of our patients who have fear of recurrence, depression, problems adjusting to physical changes, employment and insurance issues, and who are facing a sense of loss for what might have been (e.g., loss of fertility).

    Our providers work in partnership with Women’s Medicine Collaborative’s Center for Gynecologic Cancers, Lifestyle Medicine Centerphysical therapy services and   women's genetic counseling services.
