For individuals, cancer survivorship can start at diagnosis, while receiving treatment for a short or a prolonged period of time and/or can be defined as an individual who has completed their cancer treatment and shows no signs of cancer. This section’s main focus is to provide educational information resources for patients during treatment or post-treatment and share cancer journeys from other survivors. If there is a topic you think we should include on this page, please drop us a line at!
