Today, there are more than 14 million Americans alive with a history of cancer. After living with, through and beyond cancer, a person’s priorities regarding relationships, career or lifestyle may change. Cancer also deeply affects not only patients but their families, friends and caregivers.
UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center facilitates many services and resources to support cancer survivors and their loved ones. Programs include those provided by UCLA-LIVESTRONG Survivorshp Center of Excellence, Simms/Mann-UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology and Athena Breast Health Network.
Adult Cancer Survivors
High-quality post-treatment care, survivorship quality-of-life education and leading-edge research is provided via the UCLA-LIVESTRONG Vital Information and Tailored Assessment (VITA) program and the Simms/Mann Center.
