RESEARCH AT SHAW
Shaw Cancer Center has embarked on a research project in partnership with Steadman Philippon Research Institute to explore minimizing the scar tissue that occurs in orthopedic patients following surgery. The team aims to apply this study to breast cancer patients to reduce radiation-induced fibrosis.
SHAW AT HOME
Shaw at Home is an in-home, community-based palliative care program that supports the needs of cancer patients and their families in the Eagle River Valley. This program is designed to ensure our patients receive whole-person care from a care team they have come to trust throughout their cancer journey.
SPIRIT OF SURVIVAL
The Spirit of Survival program offers cancer patients and survivors fitness classes, physical therapy, emotional counseling, nutritional consults, alternative therapies, and other wellness services—all free of charge.
SHAW PATIENT ASSISTANCE FUND
Shaw Cancer Center’s Patient Assistance Fund can help patients and their families experiencing financial challenges with non-medical expenses, such as mortgage or rent payments, utility bills, car payments or repairs, groceries, etc. This short-term assistance helps ease the minds and hearts of our patients, allowing them to focus on what is most crucial: restoring their health and well-being.
