The National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship defines a cancer survivor as any individual who has been diagnosed with cancer - from the time of discovery and for the balance of life. The combination of today's prevention efforts, early detection, and advances in cancer treatment mean that many people live for years after a cancer diagnosis. Survivors - more than 10 million of them in the United States - are living longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives.
People may think life should return to "normal" once treatment is complete. But what is normal after cancer treatment? The first few months after treatment are a time of change and a time to figure out what is normal for you now. You may not feel exactly the way you felt before your diagnosis but changes in diet, exercise, and support can help with your recovery.
The CTRC Wellness Center offers a variety of programs ranging from stress reduction to healthy cooking classes to help with your recovery.
