Enjoy the Survivors Reflection Garden at HCA Virginia’s Johnston-Willis Hospital, a campus of CJW Medical Center. The garden is a tranquil and growing space for celebrating life and remembering those whose struggle with cancer has come to an end. Lined with cypress trees and filled with flowering plants and foliage, the site provides a quiet, shaded, brick-trimmed area sprouting a variety of medicinal herbs that have influenced modern medicine and cancer treatment. Donated by cancer survivor Elbert L. Pugh, Sr., the engraved bricks surrounding the garden came from the elementary school in Old Towne Petersburg, Virginia. They serve as a permanent memorial gift or survivor's celebration. For sanctuary, solitude or as a place to gather with family and friends, the reflection garden is open to all and hosts events throughout the year.
With the individualized assistance of our survivorship nurse navigators, you can get back to your life, your work and your family by learning to adapt to changes in your energy level and stamina, nutrition, medications and the potential for lymphedema or swelling and fluid retention. Classes, support groups, educational resources and survivor events all help restore your quality of life.
Members of your care team work together to help you succeed in developing a plan for your ongoing healthcare. Whether your life returns to the way it was before your cancer diagnosis and treatment or if you're facing a new normal that encompasses concerns about your physical and emotional health or finances, planning for your future helps you move forward productively.
