Care and Treatment at Stanford Cancer Survivorship Program
Cancer Survivorship Program
Cancer Survivorship is more than surviving cancer. It starts from the time of diagnosis, continues after treatment and includes individuals who experience cancer as well as family, friends and caregivers.
More people today are surviving cancer than ever before thanks to advances in detection, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up in cancer care.
Thanks to advances in detection, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care, more people are surviving cancer than ever before. Today, one in twenty adults in the US is a cancer survivor— a survivorship rate that has quadrupled since the 1970s. At Stanford, we’ve seen how these growing numbers correlate with an increased need for support-- both for people experiencing cancer and for their families, friends, and caregivers.
We created the Cancer Survivorship program because we know that for survivors and their loved ones, the cancer journey extends beyond the treatment process. We wanted to offer follow-up options that were accessible and approached healing from a holistic perspective. For these reasons, we provide a comprehensive form of “survivorship care” that addresses the complex issues that both cancer and its treatment present.
Our program offers you personalized visits with clinicians who can meet with you on a regular basis. Their expertise includes not only cancer care, but an understanding of the specific issues you and others may encounter before, during, and after the treatment process.
At Stanford, we are always looking for better ways to improve your physical and emotional health. We are committed to connecting you with state- of- the- art programs and compassionate care that can bring a sense of calm reassurance to an experience that can sometimes feel difficult or uncertain.
