The UAB Supportive Care and Survivorship Clinic is the only one of its type in a three-state area. More than 5,000 patients are treated in UAB cancer programs annually, and the program’s focus is to provide an extra layer of support and care to cancer patients from diagnosis to survivorship. The LIVESTRONG grant will support patients by giving them an outlet to express themselves through art (visual, performing and literary). The program has a longstanding commitment to arts in healing, and also has the infrastructure necessary to ensure this program’s success. With the LIVESTRONG Foundation funding this program, it has the potential to support patients in a way that might not be possible otherwise.
