Surviving Cancer

More people than ever are surviving after treatment for cancer, but sometimes living a life after cancer is almost as difficult as having the disease.

Many people expect that when their treatment for cancer is complete, they’ll go back to feeling the same as they did before they got sick.

Instead, survivors live with the lingering physical and emotional complications of the treatment that saved their lives.

Today, on Where We Live, we’ll talk to two physicians, one of them a survivor herself, along with a therapist, and a patient, about life after cancer treatment.
