June was national Cancer Survivors month and the New York State Department of Health and cancer survivors worked together to raise awareness on the issues that cancer survivors face every day.

Over one million cancer survivors live in the state and survivorship care plans are important to help coordinate continued care needs for survivors.

The DOH offers more information and resources on cancer survivorship that can be found HERE.

“Cancer survivors can experience physical, mental and social hardships, both during and after treatment,” State Health Commissioner Dr. Mary T. Bassett said. “Meeting their on-going needs requires coordination across care providers, treatments and services. A survivorship care plan serves as a critical tool to support New York’s cancer survivors, providing a well-coordinated plan to support their health and overall well-being.”
