About The Office of Cancer Survivorship

An individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis, through the balance of his or her life. There are many types of survivors, including those living with cancer and those free of cancer. This term is meant to capture a population of those with a history of cancer rather than to provide a label that may or may not resonate with individuals.

OCS works to promote a better understanding of unique needs of the growing population of cancer survivors, and to enhance our ability to address them.
