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.
