Celebrating the Sue Ann Wortman Cancer Center and survivors

July 25, 2016
There are more than 14.5 million cancer survivors living in the United States. A cancer survivor is anyone living with a history of cancer – from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life. National Cancer Survivors Day in the month of June is a great opportunity to recognize and connect with survivors, celebrate milestones and recognize those who have supported them along the way.

We had a lot to celebrate at the Sue Ann Wortman Cancer Center in June. It was the one year anniversary of the opening of our beautiful facility.

We are so fortunate to have a caring community that helped build our facility which is so welcoming for our patients and their loved ones. From the moment you arrive, you are greeted by friendly valet staff, smiling volunteers and our passionate and caring staff. The facility highlights beautiful lighting, textured walls and comfortable furniture. Of note is the stunning water wall and the colorful glass flowers that make up our donor wall. It’s a true garden of love and hope from our generous community.  Hearing the words “you have cancer” is probably one of the scariest things to hear. Having such a beautiful facility with such compassionate staff and volunteers certainly helps ease one’s journey.

We certainly strive to support and care for our patients and their loved ones. Our staff work together to offer state of the art treatment in a safe and comfortable environment.

Besides our incredible treatment staff in Radiation Oncology and Medical Oncology, we are fortunate to have several services to help our patients and their loved ones along their journey:

Recently we have added a variety of Support Programs to help patients and loved ones along their journey. Here is a sampling of the programs we offer, all free of charge:
