Living With Cancer.

Cancer is something you live with everyday. Moffitt is committed to helping you in every way possible.

Survivors

Where You Are:
Being a survivor carries its own set of challenges for many patients. They may experience a sense of disconnection as their intense relationships with dedicated Moffitt physicians and staff comes to a close. They may need to deal with side-effects from both their cancer as well as its treatments. Emotional needs may arise, and new illness may occur more frequently and require expert evaluation. Cancer and chemotherapy may place patients at higher risk for other cancers or unrelated diseases, and follow-up plans for surveillance and prevention can be complex.
