Planning for life after cancer treatment

If you’ve just finished your cancer treatment, you may be wondering what’s next. You can live life to the fullest now that you’ve completed your treatment.

Being a cancer survivor can bring its own set of challenges. A survivorship group will support you in meeting these challenges and moving on to the next phase of your life. It’s our goal to make life after cancer the best it can be.

Survivorship Care Plan

Survivorship care helps reduce, detect and treat any problems that may occur after treatment. When your active treatment is complete (surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy), create your own survivorship plan that may include:

  • The type of cancer and treatments you received
  • The late and long-term effects of these treatments
  • Signs and symptoms for early detection of new or returning cancers
  • Information on tests or procedures you might need after treatment
  • Lifestyle tips to help reduce cancer risk 

During your appointment, we can also provide referrals to many of our integrative care programs to address nutrition, stress management, sleep and more. We recommend you search for a survivorship group meeting within your community.

Live life to the fullest as a cancer survivor.
