Cancer Survivorship

The area of cancer survivorship is a relatively new topic in oncology. As more people are surviving cancer, or treating cancer as a chronic disease, we are becoming aware of some of the lasting side effects of treatment, and the need to reinvent ourselves as survivors. From alternative therapies to help with the symptoms, to understanding moleculaer profiling, to advocacy, there is much to be learned and shared about survivorship.
