Comprehensive Cancer Survivorship Act (CCSA)
The Comprehensive Cancer Survivorship Act (CCSA) is a landmark piece of legislation that aims to provide a lifeline to survivors and their families by addressing the entire survivorship continuum of care for this deadly disease. For every survivor, cancer will be a very different and personal experience. This legislation aims to set new standards for survivorship from diagnosis to end of life, ensuring the best and most seamless experience for survivors, and their families and caregivers, throughout their journey. The CCSA will address gaps in survivorship care and develop desperately needed standards to improve the overall patient-centered quality of care and navigation needs that cancer survivors and their families experience.
National Cancer Survivors Day
National Cancer Survivors Day is a celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families, and an outreach to the community. Our robust Cancer Survivorship Program brings together clinicians and scientists across various disciplines to provide specialized cancer survivorship care to enhance physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Sylvester's Cancer Survivorship and Translational Behavioral Sciences Research Program is pleased to offer Sylvester Survivorship Journeys: Our Voices, a newsletter dedicated to the cancer survivors, loved ones, caregivers, and their communities.
