Spiritual Support for Skin Cancer Patients
At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we recognize that spiritual support for cancer patients can be an important part of care. That is why we work to create an open 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 support you in your fight against skin 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 skin cancer treatment.
At CTCA, our spiritual support services for cancer patients are a natural extension of our compassionate, integrative and whole-person approach to treatment for skin cancer. We offer a variety of programs 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 spiritual support services are still available by phone and through our spiritual outreach program, Our Journey of Hope.
