It's your life, we want you to live it.
The physicians and staff of the Center for Cancer Care at St. Luke's Hospital spend time each year participating in events and fundraisers that benefit cancer research and treatment for patients throughout the
St. Louis community. Activities such as forming race teams and gathering sponsors take place throughout the year around the St. Luke's campus. Some of the events related to cancer research and treatment in which
St. Luke's participated this past year include:
  • The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
  • The American Cancer Society Relay for Life
  • The AMC Walks for Women
  • The AMC Day of Caring.
The Center for Cancer Care also participates in the Reach to Recovery program, pairing volunteers who have recovered from breast cancer with patients who are newly diagnosed and facing treatment, as well as the Look Good, Feel Better program, offered through our Social Services Department.

This year we offered two new programs specifically for men dealing with the most commonly diagnosed cancer: prostate cancer. In June, Just for Men offered prostate cancer information and screenings; and Ask the Doctors about Prostate Cancer took place in September and was very well received. Plans are underway to repeat both programs in 2005.

Finally, Cancer Awareness Week in April brought a series of timely lectures to our campus coordinated by
St. Luke's Health & Cancer Education Center. In October, St. Luke's hosted several activities for both employees and the public that brought attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Screenings and education for the public and ongoing support for those diagnosed with cancer will continue to be an integral part of the Center for Cancer Care at St. Luke's.
