Thanks to advances in cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, and follow-up care, more people than ever before are surviving. In the United States, more than 14.5 million people are alive today after being diagnosed with cancer.
Cancer survivors face a unique set of issues and challenges after completing treatment. Cancer and its treatment can have longlasting effects on your body. Physical, emotional, and financial hardships may persist for years. Jupiter Medical Center’s Survivorship Program empowers survivors offering support, education and resources in the years after completing cancer treatment.
The survivorship lecture series is open to any cancer patient, caregiver, family member or friend. The series is designed to address issues relevant to cancer survivors including fear of recurrence, fatigue, pain and neuropathy, body image changes, menopausal symptoms, sleep disturbances, fertility, anxiety/depression, maintaining healthy lifestyle and spirituality.
