So use mclust to fit a mixture model? 
(for one gene or exprs%*%coefs) e.g. 

mc <- Mclust(exprScoreOrWhatever)
plot( survfit( Surv(EFS, EFSevent) ~ mc$class ) )

This is from memory but done often.
Seems not too hard to add...?

It's the most obvious way to integrate gene expression (allow the samples to be put into a low expression and high expression group, based on a threshold) and clinical data, but I don't see how it could be done with canceR.
