Jefferson University Hospitals

Spirituality & Cancer: Conversations

Jefferson recognizes that a diagnosis is an emotional experience for our patients and their loved ones. In addition to your physical needs, you may have emotional and spiritual needs that are an important part of your healing process. We are here for you, to listen, to comfort and to care.

We honor the beliefs and traditions that bring meaning to you. We respect the views of all religions, denominations, and personal philosophies.

Your experience of emotional and spiritual distress is unique to you. Through reverently acknowledging your story, we support you and your loved ones through your personal journey. We provide a listening presence to hear your burdens and concerns, your worries and fears, your questions of meaning, and feelings that are on your heart and on your mind.

This is an opportunity for those who are any stage of a cancer treatment, from diagnosis to remission and all points in between. We welcome families and loved ones who may be on the journey with you.
