There is a misconception that after cancer treatment, the challenges you have been facing are no longer an issue. But in reality, the effects of cancer continue long after treatment has ended. As a cancer survivor, you may notice that your focus has shifted from the challenges of treatment to other post-treatment challenges. You are not alone – there are 12 million cancer survivors just like you!
Social work services at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center can help you deal with changes to everyday life that can occur as a result of cancer treatment. The role of the oncology social worker is to help patients and their families deal with problems that arise after completing cancer treatment.
