According to the National Cancer Institute, about 10 million people have survived cancer. 5 million of those have survived 5 years or more after first being diagnosed. More people are living relatively normal lives for years after original diagnosis.
Life after cancer means more than just putting memories of diagnosis and treatment in the past. Many parts of a survivor’s life continue require adjustment, due to the aftereffects of treatment, the emotional toll on family, and the anxiety that comes with each visit to your healthcare team.
