In this section:


If you or a family member/friend has just been diagnosed with breast cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer or one of the many other cancers that are diagnosed each year this section will help you understand how to live more effectively as a survivor.


When am I a cancer survivor?

You decide. Survivorship is a mindset. You can be a survivor from day one. Your attitude allows you to triumph with, through, or beyond cancer.

One definition of a cancer survivor: An individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis through the balance of his or her life. Family members, friends, and caregivers are also impacted by the survivorship experience and are therefore included in this definition.
