Support Women Recovering from Cancer Treatments >>>
(210) 654-7900


The SLEW Cancer Wellness Center provides survivorship/aftercare services at no cost for financially qualified women.  These services improve the quality of life for uninsured, underinsured, and low income women recovering from and undergoing surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation treatment for cancer. Services are provided holistically at a single location so those who are unable to go from agency to agency for services due to health and mobility issues, budget constraints, and transportation limitations can access the care they need.

SLEW was initially modeled after an evidence-based program at the Mayo Clinic.  The model addresses mind, body and spirit, and has been proven to increase a patients’ perceived quality of life.
