Cancer Goes to the Beach! [Webinar]

Just because you are going through cancer treatment doesn't mean you can't enjoy a summer vacation. With a little bit of homework and planning, your vacation can be the trip of a lifetime. A vacation can be rejuvenating and help relieve some of the stress you may be having related to your cancer treatment.

    LIVSTRONG Care Plan OncoLink

    The LIVESTRONG Care Plan is a "survivorship care plan" that is individualized based on the answers you provide in a brief questionnaire. In order to develop the most accurate plan of care, you may need to talk to your oncology team to have some details of your cancer therapy available:

    • Type of cancer
    • If you received radiation therapy, what type of cancer was this done for?
    • If you received chemotherapy, what medications were received?
    • If you underwent surgery, what procedures were done?

    A new diagnosis of cancer brings out a lot of emotions; all at a time when decisions need to be made that can affect the rest of your life. It is important for the patient to become an active member of his or her healthcare team. This guide has been developed to give you suggestions on ways to make this time easier and to help you make the best decisions. It is divided into sections that mirror the typical path a person with a new diagnosis might take. Not all sections will apply to you, so use those that fit your situation.

      Twelve years later and not much has changed. Not much. Not really. Starting with the entrance. He knocks twice, opens the door and hurriedly strides into the examining room.
