Comprehensive Cancer Care, Close to Home
Highly skilled caregivers use the latest technology to make the Centegra Sage Cancer Center your best ally in the treatment and management of cancer. Our team works with you and your family at all cancer stages, from early diagnosis through treatment and aftercare.
Our cancer center is comparable to academic medical centers. Physicians from different specialties collaborate through tumor boards to develop a personalized plan of care for each patient. They consider national guidelines and each individual’s needs to develop comprehensive care for patients in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. The care team of oncology professionals includes physicians, nurses and support staff from many different specialties.
At Centegra Sage Cancer Center, evaluation, education, comprehensive cancer treatment, aftercare services, support programs and more, are offered through the team approach. We understand that cancer impacts the patient, family, and community, so we focus on both quality of life and long-term health.
As part of our comprehensive care, Centegra Sage Cancer Center offers an on-site infusion treatment center which provides chemotherapy, immunotherapy, biologic biotherapy, hormone therapy and symptom support. We also offer an on-site pharmacy staffed by pharmacists with extensive cancer care experience.

Cheri Amore Garden of Hope
Cheri Amore was a vibrant young woman from the McHenry area. She lived a passionate life full of adventure, humor and loving relationships. Despite battling Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia from the age of three, Cheri brought energy and enthusiasm to every activity, inspiring others with her zest for life.
She lost her battle shortly after her 17th birthday but left a legacy of hope and courage for all who knew her. The Cheri Amore Garden of Hope symbolizes Cheri’s life. The beauty of a trickling waterfall, perennial grasses and flowers, a variety of trees and calming music provide a tranquil, private environment for finding peace, encouragement and healing in the face of ongoing cancer treatment and recovery.
