  • The Role of Spirituality after Cancer Treatment

    "Ultimately, people can come to a place where they are either finding new answers to their questions or finding a new path altogether."
    — Jen Dillinger, M.Div. 

    Spirituality and the Cancer Journey

    Spirituality isn't limited to religious tradition. It can also include meditation, mindfulness, and related practices that help us connect with the moment and with others. Cancer can be a challenging and demanding experience for patients and their families. For many people, spirituality or faith provides a source of support and comfort in this time.

    What You Can Do


    Chaplains are an integral part of the health care team available to patients and their families while receiving care at the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center. They offer consultation and counsel regarding spiritual, emotional, and ethical matters.

    You may want to consider Spiritual Care services when:

    • You are struggling with your spirituality or religion during a difficult time.
    • You face ethical dilemmas or decision.
    • You simply need emotional support.
