Surviving Cancer

Nov 28, 2012

More people than ever are surviving after treatment for cancer, but sometimes living a life after cancer is almost as difficult as having the disease.

Many people expect that when their treatment for cancer is complete, they’ll go back to feeling the same as they did before they got sick.

Instead, survivors live with the lingering physical and emotional complications of the treatment that saved their lives.

But this is changing.

Programs are growing to meet the demands of survivors wanting more out of post-cancer life.

Today, on Where We Live, we’ll talk to two physicians, one of them a survivor herself, along with a therapist, and a patient, about life after cancer treatment.
