Survivorship

Cancer can change your life in unexpected ways. You may need to understand side effects, take part in physical therapy, or seek additional support to manage the emotional impact cancer has had on your life.

Recovery takes time and you do not have to experience it alone. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) is here to help you thrive after cancer treatment and to provide continuing recovery and follow-up support for years to come.

SCCA offers screenings, prevention recommendations and help with after effects of your cancer and treatment.

We encourage you to participate in one of our follow-up programs for cancer survivors. While your cancer may be cured, there may be long-term effects from it or its treatment. As a survivor, you are at higher risk for a secondary cancer; SCCA can help you manage that risk.

Survivorship Clinic

The SCCA Survivorship Clinic offers treatment, support, and education after cancer treatment is complete for adults.

Regardless of whether you were treated for cancer at SCCA or at another medical facility, you can meet with our providers and receive a Survivorship Care Plan, which contains resources and support information particular to your needs.

Long-Term Follow-Up

The Fred Hutchinson Long-Term Follow-up Program at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) provides life-long monitoring and care for people who have had a bone marrow, stem cell transplant or cellular immunotherapy. 

Women's Wellness Clinic

The SCCA Women's Wellness Clinic is for women who have completed cancer treatment or who are at high risk of developing breast or a gynecologic cancer.

Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic

The SCCA Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic offers monitoring for patients who have completed their sarcoma treatment. This includes routine follow-up exams and scan review, which is important in order to detect possible early signs or sarcoma recurrence or metastatic disease.

Childhood cancer survivors

Our alliance partner, Seattle Children's, offers the Cancer Survivor Program for survivors of childhood cancers. The program helps children, teens and young adults stay health after cancer treatment.
