Life changes the moment you are diagnosed with cancer. In that moment, you become a cancer survivor. The goal of our Cancer Survivorship Care Plan is to help you and your family start to manage the impact of your cancer experience. We will focus on maintaining and improving your quality of life, as you define it, during and after your treatment.
From the very start, we will work with you and your care team to understand your values and what matters most to you. Together we will use that information to create a plan for your ongoing health care that is personalized. The care you receive will be based on specific guidelines designed for cancer survivors. It will be tailored to meet the specific needs of your diagnosis, treatment and side effects you may experience. This includes late side effects that may occur months or years after treatment is complete. Examples include:
