Screenings, education for the public and ongoing support for those diagnosed with cancer continue to be an integral part of the Center for Cancer Care at St. Luke's. The physicians and staff of St. Luke's Center for Cancer Care participate in a variety of activities that benefit cancer research and treatment. In the past year, these activities included:
  • The American Cancer Society Relay for Life of West County
  • Yoga for Cancer Patients in Cooperation with the Wellness Committee
  • Komen St. Louis Race for the Cure
The Center for Cancer Care participates in the following American Cancer Society patient programs: Reach to Recovery, pairing volunteers who have recovered from breast cancer with patients who are newly diagnosed and facing treatment, and Look Good, Feel Better, offered through St. Luke's Social Services Department.

The Center for Cancer Care participates in an annual skin cancer screenings, as well as an annual men's health fair, Timeout For Men's Health, providing both prostate cancer and skin cancer information and screenings. In April, St. Luke's hosted several activities for both employees and the public that brought attention to Cancer Awareness Month. They included:
  • Cancer Prevention SEN-SE
  • The Basics of Bone Marrow Transplants
  • Genetic Testing and Hereditary Factors for Cancer
