More and more people are surviving cancer and living many years as survivors. In fact, there are now more than 10 million cancer survivors in the United States.
Patients receive excellent care during their diagnosis and treatment, and report feeling supported and cared for. However, after treatment ends, many patients find the transition into cancer survivorship challenging. Fear of recurrence, fatigue and other long-term effects of cancer treatment are common problems. Patients are often uncertain what to expect going forward, both clinically and psychosocially.
We're confident that our patients will feel supported not only during their treatment, but as they move beyond into survivorship and the challenges that may bring.
