Hearts of Cancer Patients and Survivors
We are honored to care for you. As we help guide you on heart healthy lifestyle habits, we recognize that many of these health habits also help you prevent certain cancers, such as breast cancer. If you have developed cancer, we want to be here for you from beginniing to end.
We help your cancer doctors determine the best ways to protect your heart so that you can have all the cancer treatment you need to fight the cancer and have to also fight heart damage from the cancer treatment.
We teach you how to know your heart risk in cancer, whether you have/had cancer treatment many years ago, recently, or in the future.
We guide you on knowledge about the effects of radiation, traditional chemotherapy, targeted cancer medication therapy, hormonal therapy, and immunotherapies on the heart and blood vessels.
We also help you optimize your heart health and prevent heart attacks and heart failure, which studies suggest may help prevent your cancer from spreading or coming back.
