What Does 'Cancer Survivorship' Mean?

Being a cancer survivor means more than completing cancer treatment.

It means that you have come through what can be a long and difficult journey filled with challenges that you have never faced before – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. It also means that you’re an inspiration to others, even if you aren’t feeling like your “old self.” You’re living proof that cancer patients can become cancer survivors who live active, full, healthy lives.

While you may feel a little overwhelmed at first, your thoughts may turn towards what you’d like to do with family and friends, your responsibilities, and your future. You may also have questions and concerns about what you can or should be doing as a cancer survivor, and what you should avoid.  And, like many survivors, you may have concerns that the cancer will return.

Our survivorship providers are here to help answer those questions. Be sure to schedule your survivorship appointment today at any of our locations.
