Life After Colorectal Cancer

At Siteman Cancer Center, our Survivorship Program focuses on maintaining a lifelong connection with all of our cancer patients so that you can embrace life to the fullest. This includes offering services that meet the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of you as our patient and your family or caregivers.

Our team in the Survivorship Program can link you to onsite or community resources, such as free counseling services and cancer support groups, or direct you to case managers who can assist with financial concerns. We also know about the possibility of lingering side effects after treatment, such as fatigue and memory loss,  and can answer your questions about available options.

Need help eating healthier or quitting smoking? We can connect you to those resources, too. The important thing to realize is that we are here for you throughout your entire lifetime. You don’t have to face anxiety, questions or concerns alone. We’re here to help whenever you need us. Just call the Survivorship Program office at (314) 747-1792.

Siteman Cancer Center’s Survivorship Program. Your Partner for Life.

If genetic testing has indicated either FAP or HNPCC, we have a registry that tracks that and gives patients and families important support resources:

  • Educational events and literature on inherited colorectal cancer syndromes.
  • A multidisciplinary care team, including colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists, genetic counselors and a registry coordinator.
  • Opportunities to become involved in research related to inherited colorectal cancer syndromes.
  • The latest updates on genetic testing, screening guidelines, research findings, current studies and other pertinent news.
