Survivorship

You're a Cancer Survivor. What's Next?

Cancer and its treatment can have long-lasting or late-onset effects on your body. The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Survivorship Program can offer you support, treatment and education in the years after completing cancer treatment.

A member of the LIVESTRONG Survivorship Center of Excellence Network, the Survivorship Program is helping to lead a nationwide effort to help survivors and their doctors understand, prevent and manage the medical and psychosocial effects of having cancer and receiving treatment.

The Survivorship Program empowers survivors to take charge of their renewed health and teaches them how to educate their family members and healthcare team regarding their needs.

We'll show you how to embrace your new life after cancer with optimism and vigor. 

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Survivorship Program has three distinct areas of focus. Please follow the links below to learn more about our program.

Clinical Care
Through the Survivorship Clinic at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance we provide individualized survivorship care plans that empower survivors with knowledge about their cancer diagnosis and treatment, address the chronic effects of cancer and its therapy, provide monitoring recommendations to allow for early identification of treatment-related sequelae, and promote health-protective behaviors.

Education
Throughout the year we offer events and lectures for cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, friends, family, and health care professionals designed to provide general education on a variety of the late and long-term effects faced by cancer survivors after treatment is completed.

Research
Through our research efforts we conduct and support research that both examines and addresses the long and short-term physical, psychological, social, and economic effects of cancer and its treatment among pediatric and adult survivors of cancer and their families.
