Life After Cancer

A cancer survivor is anyone living with a history of cancer - from the moment of diagnosis through the remainder of life. Healthy survival is not just about survival; it’s also about thriving and living well.

Survivorship is helping patients live well through the emotional, physical and practical challenges of finding a “new normal”. 

Katmai Oncology Group offers professional staff resources to help patients work through issues such as:

  • Coping with the fear of recurrence
  • Improving body image and personal confidence
  • Finding the life lessons or “silver linings” that are part of many patients’ journey through a cancer diagnosis

The ultimate goal is the patient's long-term mental and physical health and an excellent quality of life post cancer.

Our Philosophy:

  • We don’t just treat your cancer, we work as a team to provide a seamless continuum of care to make cancer treatment and recovery effective, convenient and accommodating – one patient at a time. Dr. Shannon Smiley
