Spiritual Support for Melanoma Cancer
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we recognize that spiritual care and support is important to many melanoma patients. That is why we work to create an open, supportive and uplifting environment that embraces the beliefs of all patients, their families and our staff. We provide a universal umbrella of support that strengthens, motivates and inspires you to explore how faith and spirituality can help strengthen you in your fight against melanoma cancer.
Studies have shown that spirituality can help reduce fear, anxiety, loneliness, or other emotional issues that can affect how well you are able to adjust and respond to melanoma treatment.
At CTCA, our melanoma cancer spiritual support services are a natural extension of our compassionate, integrative and whole-person approach to treatment. We offer a variety of programs and services for you and your family members. These include:
- New patient orientation
- Individual and group prayer
- Prayer chains facilitated by hospital staff
- Counseling by a faith representative of your choice
- Weekly interfaith worship and communion services
- Patient growth and support groups that focus on healing, faith and life
- Pastoral comfort and support
- Assistance with the development of advanced directives and/or living wills
- Family consultations
- Grief and bereavement counseling and referral
- Taped ministry
- Communication with your local pastor and church
- Telephone consultations with patients/family members
After leaving CTCA, our melanoma cancer spiritual support services are still available by phone and through our spiritual outreach program, Our Journey of Hope®.
