At the University of Minnesota, we align with the National Cancer Institute’s definition of survivorship. “An individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis through the balance of life. There are many types of survivors, including those living with cancer and those free of cancer.”
The Cancer Survivorship Program
We recognize that life after a cancer diagnosis is a lifelong change to your health and lifestyle that affects your family and loved ones. Our goal is to help provide valuable resources and information to help you navigate the many questions that arise throughout a diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship. Through our events, programs, and community partnerships we are proud to be a resource for Minnesotans and beyond. We also recognize the financial burden of cancer and offer all of our patient focused programming free of charge thanks to our generous supporters. Caregivers are another important component in survivorship. We invite caregivers to participate in our programs. You belong here.
