Filling a hole…
- Today, there are an estimated 15.5 million cancer survivors in the U.S. These friends, family members and neighbors have unique health conditions which are not addressed by current medical care.
- Most survivors go through intense treatments using toxic drugs and/or radiation which can have lifelong effects; the most common side effects include pain, depression and fatigue.
- Oncologists and other medical staff are not trained to focus on patients after treatment, nor are they reimbursed for the time.
- Nationwide, the majority of hospitals that treat cancer patients do not have a wellness program to support them post-treatment.
- Scientific and clinical evidence show that improving diet, exercise and overall wellness improves quality of life and reduces cancer recurrence, but many survivors need information and support to affect these changes.
