Breast Cancer Survivorship

Your health and well-being after cancer treatment.

Survivorship is the period of your life after your treatment for breast cancer. Just like your breast cancer and your personalized treatment plan, how you approach survivorship is unique to your particular situation. Some women have a strong support system of family members, friends and others they rely on during their transition from cancer patients to cancer survivors. Others need additional help to adjust to their “new normal” after the intensive period of care and treatment.

Whatever you need, you are not alone. We offer a wide range of survivorship programs for breast cancer survivors, including:

We also offer Survivorship Clinics, where we’ll address concerns specific to your Survivorship Care Plan. This plan will include regular monitoring for recurrence of your breast cancer, as well as addressing any side effects or prolonged effects from your cancer treatment.
