For faith-based individuals, spiritual support may play a fundamental role in their treatment journey at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA). Getting in touch with your spirituality may help you better cope with the psychological and emotional effects of cancer. If you express an interest in spiritual support services, they will be made available to you and your family members. At CTCA, we reach across cultures, beliefs and religious backgrounds so that all patients, from any faith, may find the strength, motivation and inspiration they need during their cancer journey.
