Here at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, we go the extra mile to help you and your family feel comfortable and cared for while you’re undergoing cancer treatment. That’s why we offer ancillary services — such as EBeauty wigs, pastoral care, and other programs — to help make your time with us as smooth as possible.
Losing your hair while undergoing cancer treatment can be devastating. We are here to help with our EBeauty Wigs Program, which provides wigs to our patients who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy or radiation treatment. In partnership with Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, EBeauty Wigs offers our cancer patients one free wig per year, with a prescription from your oncologist or nurse practitioner. We hold monthly EBeauty Mobile Wig events at our Lennar, Plantation, and Deerfield satellite locations.
Look Good, Feel Better Program
Taught by a licensed beauty professional, the American Cancer Society’s “Look Good, Feel Better” program is a two-hour makeup and skincare class for women who are currently receiving chemotherapy, radiation, or other form of cancer treatment. We offer the workshops on a bi-monthly basis, beginning in February 2018.
We encourage people with any type of cancer or undergoing any type of cancer treatment to participate in our Look Good, Feel Better program. To register for the workshop, please call 800-227-2345.
At Sylvester, we realize the importance of caring for your spiritual and religious needs. Clinically trained chaplains are available for you and your family to provide spiritual counseling, support, and comfort. Chaplains are part of your health care team.
Chaplains are nondenominational and interfaith in their approach and offer you and your family the opportunity to review and reflect on your spiritual concerns. In addition, our chaplains can facilitate referral for community clergy and/or your own clergy. Our pastoral care team is committed to providing spiritual well being and related concerns during and after your cancer treatment.
Our Interfaith Chapel, The Jill Selevan Chapel, is located on the first floor of UMHC, across from the cafeteria. It is open 24 hours a day.
Pet therapy can help reduce anxiety and stress and improve your state-of-mind and well-being while undergoing cancer treatment. Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center offers pet therapy services for our patients and their families.
