You are not alone.

Overview

Every year more than 36,000 Massachusetts residents hear the words, “You have cancer.” Thanks to better ways of finding and treating cancer, there are more cancer survivors living today than ever before.

Some cancer survivors will complete treatment. Others continue on active treatment, managing cancer much like a chronic health condition. While each survivor’s cancer and treatment may be different, each is living through the experience just like you. They have similar questions and fears, as well as similar determination, and hopes about getting better and moving forward with their lives.

This guide is not about your cancer treatment; it is to help you prepare for the journey ahead and improve the quality of your life.
