Cancer Support For You
The experience of cancer challenges a person in every conceivable way -- emotional and physical stamina, financial and employment security, relationships, and self image. Through the comprehensive services of New Outlook -- The Cancer Recovery Program at CHI St. Vincent provides assistance in dealing with the effects of the disease and its treatment.
Staffed by trained professionals and volunteers, New Outlook offers the following services:
- Wigs and head scarves
- "You Look Marvelous" Makeover Classes
- Support groups for cancer survivors and their families
- Information and referral services
- Navigation to supportive services
- Private professional counseling
Support groups meet at CHI St. Vincent Sherwood Rehabilitation Hospital on the third Monday of the month, Noon-1 pm, in the Administration Conference Room.
Confidential And Professional
Most of the services of New Outlook are free. Some services are available by appointment only. All services are confidential and have been designed by a team of oncology professionals and women whose lives have been touched by cancer.
Alesa Garner, BSMT ASCP CN-BC, New Outlook Coordinator - “How do you put into words the impact that New Outlook has had in every county of our state for 20 years! I have the honor and privilege of seeing the smiles and the tears of survivors and their caregivers when New Outlook provides a small glimmer of hope in the midst of a traumatic cancer diagnosis. New Outlook truly embodies the ministry and mission of our organization in addressing the needs of body, mind, and spirit.”
