    What is Survivorship?

    Survivorship is living with and beyond cancer. Survivorship covers the physical, psychological and economic issues of cancer from diagnosis until the end of life. Caregivers, family members and anyone else impacted by cancer is also a survivor.

    Why Does it Matter?

    Research has shown that other than the initial diagnosis of cancer, people experience the highest levels of distress one to three months post-treatment! However, there are many simple and practical ways to help make the transition back into everyday life.
