Post Treatment and Survivorship
Care Beyond Cancer
Harbin Clinic Cancer Center is dedicated to providing patients with continued personalized care after treatment to help patients live to their fullest potential. Though many patients go on to lead very healthy, normal lives, we acknowledge that life may never be the same as it was before diagnosis. There can be long-term and late effects of chemotherapy and radiation including on-going emotional stress, as well as the patient’s desire to prevent cancer recurrence. We are here to help address these issues by providing recommendations related to nutrition, exercise, complementary therapies, and smoking cessation.
iTHRIVE is a mobile web application that helps create a personalized wellness plan for cancer survivors. It is designed to help patients heal from treatment, reduce risk of recurrence and achieve optimal wellness. The iTHRIVE Plan is dynamic, fun and engaging. Patients decide which action steps they want to focus on and complete them at their own pace. The program is offered through Cancer Navigators. To learn more visit their web site.
Faces of Hope
One of the most important weapons in the fight against cancer is a positive attitude. That’s why, alongside Harbin Clinic Cancer Center’s world-class physicians, state-of-the-art technology, and architecturally stunning headquarters built in 2010, it is important to keep the names and faces of cancer fighters and survivors front and center. The Faces of Hope photography collection gracing the interiors of the Cancer Center shows the spirit, individuality, diversity and grit of those fighting and winning against cancer in Northwest Georgia. Each stunning black and white portrait illuminates a person who has fought and won against cancer and who is living a rich and rewarding life after the cancer journey. Taken by local photographer, Kelly Moore who lost his own father to cancer, felt this would project would be a great benefit to patients. “So many of the people treated at the Harbin Clinic Cancer Center have inspiring stories,” said Dr. Missy Dillmon, medical oncologist for Harbin Clinic. “You can see it in each photograph adorning the walls of the Cancer Center, giving hope and joy to patients and their families and caregivers."
