Spiritual Support in Cancer Treatment

We understand at North Houston Cancer Clinics that cancer treatment is more than just physical healing; it requires a whole-person approach to address the emotional, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of our patients. This is why we give priority to comprehensive spiritual support as an adjunct to medical interventions.

Why Spiritual Support Matters in Cancer Treatment:

  1. Inner Strength and Resilience: Cancer may break down one’s inner strength and resilience spiritually. Spiritual support assists patients in developing their internal power to withstand the challenges of cancer treatment.


  1. Sense of Purpose and Meaning: Often faced with cancer people start asking themselves about the meaning, purpose of life, and existence. 


  1. Reducing Anxiety and Stress: The diagnosis of cancer and its treatment can lead to increased anxiety levels and stress. Patients can get relief through spiritual behaviors involving meditation, prayer, or mindfulness which mitigates these symptoms by promoting tranquility amid uncertainties.


  1. Connection and Community: Spirituality often entails connectedness – a person with oneself, others, or something beyond one’s selfhood.
