Thanks to advances in cancer screening, early detection and treatment, cancer survivors are living longer than ever before. An estimated 13.7 million Americans with a history of cancer are alive today, and the number of survivors is projected to grow each year as baby boomers age and more progress is made in the fight against cancer.
Individuals who have had cancer are survivors from initial diagnosis through the balance of life. Survivors have significant medical and psychosocial needs following their active treatment phase.
A pioneer in survivorship care, the DeCesaris Cancer Institute at Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, Md. provides a range of programs and support to help survivors manage their unique needs and challenges after cancer treatment.
We want all survivors to thrive and live a healthy, cancer-free life.
