REACH for Survivorship Program
 

A joint program of Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, and Vanderbilt University Department of Pediatrics

REACH for Survivorship Program

The REACH for Survivorship Program is Middle Tennessee’s first dedicated Cancer Survivorship Clinic. It is the first in the nation to provide services for all survivors, regardless of age at diagnosis, type of cancer, or location of treatment.

Each year, more people benefit from early cancer detection and effective treatments, leading to a remarkable increase in cure rates. There are almost 12 million cancer survivors living in the U.S. However, a cure is not enough. Cancer survivors may have an increased risk for recurrent or secondary cancers, as well as physical, emotional, or practical issues as a result of the disease and treatment.

The REACH (Research, Education, Advocacy, Clinical Care and Health) for Survivorship Program is a community resource to meet these unique needs of pediatric and adult cancer survivors. It is a bridge between the care of a cancer specialist and their primary care doctor.
