HOUSTON METHODIST SUGAR LAND HOSPITAL OFFERS NEW CANCER SURVIVORSHIP PROGRAM

Thanks to a generous grant from the George Foundation, Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital is unveiling a new program designed to promote healing, discussion and camaraderie among local cancer survivors.

Texas Department of State Health Services data shows that approximately 2,500 Fort Bend County residents are diagnosed with cancer each year, and many of these individuals have needs that extend outside of their treatment and care. The oncology team at Houston Methodist Cancer Center at Sugar Land recognized the lack of local support services designed specifically for cancer survivors. With help from the Houston Methodist Foundation, they approached The George Foundation for funding support to develop a comprehensive program, resulting in a $40,000 grant.

Beginning in November, Houston Methodist Sugar Land will offer survivors a monthly creative movement program. “Survivors will find that these sessions help improve their balance, coordination and agility, all of which are important in our daily lives,” said Sebastian-Deutsch.

In December, the hospital will add music therapy to its offerings. This program is designed to improve muscle relaxation, mood management and expression of emotion.

“Music has a way of tapping into our emotions and enabling us to reflect and acknowledge how we feel,” said Sebastian-Deutsch. “There are health benefits, too — for example, music can have a positive impact on both heart rate and blood pressure, and can even help the body release natural painkilling chemicals.”
