Survivorship-life After Treatment











Patients who have completed treatment are truly survivors and can benefit from follow-up care for the rest of their lives, including: 
  • Periodic visits with testing, labs and diagnostics as necessary
  • Long-term surveillance for cancer recurrence
  • Ongoing management of known symptoms and risks, including: GVH (graft-vs.-host), cardiac toxicity, peripheral neuropathy, fatigue, psychosocial consequences, lymphedema and reproductive health
  • Health maintenance, wellness, screening and prevention

Exercise & Thrive
