Bozeman Health Cancer Center, in conjunction with Cancer Support Community
Montana, takes an integrative approach to your care and treatment for
cancer. Within our commitment to patient-centered care, our goal is to
integrate complementary therapies and education that help reduce side-effects
and improve quality of life.
We can assist you in addressing your emotional and social needs as a cancer
patient, to improve your quality of life, encourage healthy life choices,
and alleviate suffering so you can return as closely as possible to your
normal life. We engage patients and their families to become active participants
in improving their physical, psychological, spiritual and social health.
Integrative medicine looks at you as a whole person, not just as a cancer
patient, to provide appropriate complementary services for symptom management,
particularly pain management, but also to alleviate fatigue, loss of sleep
and loss of appetite and to help you stay strong, boost your immune system,
combat side effects and regain and maintain your well-being.
Therapy options available to you include the certified START (survivorship,
transition, and rehabilitation training) Program, nutrition therapy, yoga,
strength training, meditation, music therapy, aquatic therapy, stress
reduction, art therapy, neurofeedback, pilates and other therapeutic exercise options.
We also provide a host of support groups and weekend retreats with other
cancer patients, as well as those designed for caregivers, for those who
have lost a loved one to cancer and for children whose lives are touched
by cancer, either their own or that of a family member. Educational options
include teleconferences, a cancer education series and a lending library.
Cancer and its treatments can have major effects on the patient and those
who are close to the patient. Our support staff works cooperatively with
your primary oncology team to build comprehensive and integrative care
plans that are personalized, evidence-based and safe to improve health,
quality of life and clinical outcomes.
Our team can assist with choices you may face regarding integrative medicine
and can recommend options for patients who want to incorporate integrative
therapies into their conventional cancer care. Our services are designed
to enhance your quality of life, increase your self-awareness, and prevent
and manage the range of physical and emotional symptoms.

Bozeman Health Cancer Center partners with
Cancer Support Community of Montana to offer a variety of support groups, for those undergoing treatment or
who want to improve their lives post-treatment, those who are caring for
cancer patients, or those who have lost a loved one to cancer. These services
are offered at the Cancer Center or in affiliation with local community
here to view our events, classes and support groups.
It is our goal to make this lifesaving detection procedure available to
all women. Program start up funds for the program was provided by Greater
Gallatin United Way, which makes screening mamograms available for women
under-insured or without insurance.
Every year, nearly 40,000 women in the United States die from breast cancer,
according to the American Cancer Society. Breast cancer afflicts women
in all socioeconomic levels of society, but often, it is those without
adequate health plan coverage and/or income who aren’t diagnosed
until it is too late.
The Bozeman Health/AMI Mammogram Project gives women an opportunity to
receive a free or low-cost mammogram at Bozeman Health.
The process begins with an application. All information on the application
is kept private. Contact the Health Information Center for more information
on this life-saving program today.
