Long-Term Survivor Navigator
For breast cancer survivors, every cancer-free year after completing treatment is an important milestone worth celebrating! With each passing year, you might feel more confident that you are done with breast cancer for good, and for many women five years marks their start as a long-term survivor. However, you are still likely dealing with the impact of breast cancer on your life. YSC has created Beyond 5 Years: A Navigator for Long-Term Survivors, to help you manage the issues you may face years beyond diagnosis and treatment.
Your family and friends might assume this difficult chapter of your life is over, but you’re probably still dealing with the impact of breast cancer: physically, emotionally, professionally and financially. You may feel like you are aging out of the young survivor community but have trouble connecting with older, more recently diagnosed peers. You’re likely to have questions about how breast cancer will affect you as you advance from young adulthood into middle age.
Our Long-Term navigator is designed as a companion piece to YSC's What’s Next? A Young Woman’s Post-Treatment Navigator. It features a wealth of advice that is relevant to you—everything from treatment side effects, to exercise and healthy eating and family relationships. In Beyond 5 Years, though, we aim to address some of the unique concerns women have as they transition from new survivor to longer-term survivor.
COMING SOON: The long term navigator will be available Summer 2014!
