The end of cancer treatment is a time to celebrate—you are now a survivor! This begins a phase called “survivorship.” You are joining more than 11 million other cancer survivors in the United States. However, survivors often say that once they complete treatment, they enter a new world. They expect life to return to the way it was before cancer, but it may be different.
The first few months after cancer treatment are a time of change. It will take some time to find out what “normal” means for you. You may have a new outlook on life and may want to change the way you do things. Even though you are not receiving active treatment, you still need support through this time of change. ProMedica Cancer Institute offers many support resources designed for the unique needs of cancer survivors, including a comprehensive Survivor Center.Connect with other survivors on Facebook
