At CTCA at Southwestern Regional Medical Center (Southwestern), you’ll meet other patients and their caregivers at classes that expand your knowledge on cancer-related topics.
As a patient at Southwestern, you’ll be able to become an active member of the Cancer Fighters® Program at CTCA. This popular program keeps patients who receive care at CTCA hospitals and facilities in touch with each other through an extensive online community, local events and regular updates. While onsite, visit the Cancer Fighters Corner in Café L’Abri to learn how to get involved in the program and to learn about fun activities happening at the hospital.
In addition, you’ll also be able to stay in touch with friends and family through CarePages, easy-to-use web pages that allow you to update your loved ones while you are receiving care. It’s a great way to quickly communicate your progress with cancer treatment and build a community of support.
CarePages help you and your circle of family and friends
- Share news and photos
- Send messages of love and support during a time of need
Furthermore, you’ll discover endless opportunities to connect with other people who share a common interest—fighting cancer. Online at CancerCompass®, you can exchange messages with fellow cancer fighters and their loved ones around the world. You can also access the latest news on cancer breakthroughs and receive a weekly e-newsletter that highlights cancer-related articles, features and announcements.
You can update your CarePage and respond to messages on CancerCompass at our library, on the second floor of the hospital. There you’ll find a variety of books and Internet-ready computers.
