Nearly 12 million cancer survivors are living in the U.S. and many more worldwide. Today, more people than ever are surviving longer and leading full lives during and after cancer treatment. The day cancer treatment ends, a new chapter in life begins. While some survivors leave cancer behind and move forward with few problems, others might experience physical or emotional and day-to-day challenges after cancer treatment is done. Knowing how to plan for and get the best possible post-treatment follow-up care can greatly contribute to your quality of life.
Community resource information will be provided by the American Cancer Society, Cancer Support Community, HERS Breast Center Foundation, and the Sandra J. Wing Healing Therapies Foundation.
