Cancer Fatigue Program

One of the most common side effects of cancer treatment is fatigue. Many patients assume it is something they just have to live with, but our Cancer Fatigue Program is specifically designed to combat cancer-related fatigue and other cancer treatment side effects such as issues with balance and limitations on movement, flexibility and strength.

What Can I Expect?

Treatment for cancer-related fatigue, which is usually covered by insurance, begins with a referral from your doctor. After a thorough evaluation, our therapists develop a customized treatment plan that focuses on your specific needs. The overall goal is to improve and enhance each person's quality of life during and after treatment.

During cancer-related fatigue treatment, patients have one-on-one sessions in the gym with a therapist. Depending on each individual's needs, an exercise program includes focus on strength, balance, flexibility and aerobics.

Ongoing Care

Once patients have completed their cancer-related fatigue treatment, the Cancer Fitness Program provides ongoing support for patients who want to continue with an exercise program. The Cancer Fitness Program is available to all cancer patients with clearance from their physician. The program allows patients to make use of the medically supervised gym at the Disney Family Cancer Center.

Cancer doesn’t discriminate, but access to great cancer care hasn’t always been the same for everyone. At Providence, we are deeply committed to making sure every patient we treat has access to the best cancer care. We value, respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual and spiritual identities of each member of our diverse communities, and we never turn a patient away. Instead, we work harder to make sure every patient is treated equally and with dignity – whoever you are, and wherever you're at.

When you become a patient at Providence, you become part of a collaborative cancer-care network that often exceeds national measures for patient outcomes. This network includes award-winning physicians, scientists, researchers and caregivers across 51 hospitals in seven states. The power of this network, combined with the expertise of your local team, means you’re getting the best, most compassionate care. And if you need to meet with a specialist outside your area, we’ve got telehealth technology to help. Our network is one of the reasons 50,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients choose Providence each year.

Providence cancer research provides options, and hope, for patients seeking advanced procedures and therapies. We’re proud of our long history of pioneering clinical trials, research and evidence-based therapies. We established the first cancer-care center west of the Mississippi. We also have over 90 years of radiation research. Among other groundbreaking firsts: We led the international trial of the first immunotherapy to be approved for patients with melanoma, as well as the first successful gene-engineered T-cell therapy for metastatic pancreatic cancer. As a Providence patient, you have the opportunity to participate in – or benefit from – the 1,300 new clinical trials that begin each year.
