For Survivors

More than ever, cancer is a disease that people survive. From the day we meet you, your survivorship is the goal we have in mind as we develop and deliver your personalized treatment plan. Once your treatment is complete, we’re here with the follow-up care and support services to build your health and help you live your life to the fullest in every way.

As the personal stories of cancer survivors will tell you, our patients not only survive, but they also go on to lead active, healthy lives—often with newfound perspective and sense of purpose. Many want to reach out and help other cancer patients, and you'll find many ways to do so right here.

Life after cancer


Fighting cancer can be a journey for a lifetime. When you’re putting your energy and focus into getting treatment and getting better, it’s natural not to be thinking too much about what life will be like afterward. But survivors today can find everything they need to stay healthy and tackle the physical and emotional challenges that come after cancer.

At the Cancer Partnership, we'll help you with a variety of resources that help you regain your strength, your well-being—your life. Long after your treatment is complete, our care and support keep making a difference.

Resources to access for your journey and beyond



After your cancer treatment, you’ll find a whole community of fellow survivors and organizations to help you get the information and support you’re looking for. Increase your body’s strength and flexibility. Get one-on-one support from other survivors who understand what you’re going through. And learn new tools to regain a sense of control and hopefulness. The following are just some of the best resources for cancer survivors available to you online and in your local community.

Giving back has never felt better


Who better to help a cancer patient through their journey than someone who’s walked in their shoes? Volunteering is a great way to celebrate your survivorship and help others through their cancer experience.

Every day at the Cancer Partnership, volunteers help us go “above and beyond” in our attention to the individual needs of cancer patients. Thanks to their thoughtful presence, we’re able to offer an even more personalized approach.

Volunteers might work in the Cancer Resource Center, help drive patients to their medical care as part of the Road to Recovery program, or strengthen a patient’s self-image through the “Look Good…Feel Better” class. The opportunities are diverse, and we look for ways to match them with your skills and interests.

In order to make sure the volunteer experience is rewarding and benefits our patients, we ask all volunteers to take part in formal training offered by Providence and the American Cancer Society.

Ready to volunteer?
Call the Providence Volunteer Office at 425-261-4580 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

There are many ways to show your support



All donations at Providence Regional Cancer Partnership are facilitated through Providence General Foundation.  There are many ways to show your support. Gifts may be unrestricted and used in the area of greatest need, or you may specify that your gift be targeted to a particular program or purpose. Some people use annual giving to support the ongoing needs of the organization while others use gift planning to leave a legacy to Providence or to make major gifts to the Cancer Partnership during their lifetime. And some even choose to share the gift of time or talent by volunteering on an event or committee. The ways to give are endless.
