What is survivorship?

Being a cancer survivor brings its own set of challenges. Our Survivorship Program helps you develop a follow-up care plan to make sure you are getting the most out of life. You’re not alone, we’re here to support you through the social, emotional and physical effects of cancer. 

During a Survivorship Program visit you will:

  • Have a comprehensive medical exam
  • Learn the late and long-term effects of cancer and cancer treatments
  • Explore some healthy lifestyle behaviors to help reduce complications and lower the risk of new cancer development
  • Get a personalized cancer treatment summary and survivorship care plan
