Today there are more than 12 million cancer survivors in the United States. In New Jersey there are an estimated 335,000 cancer survivors. Cancer survivorship is the experience of living with, through and beyond the diagnosis of cancer. Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey’s Center for Cancer Survivorship provides a focal point through which all survivor care and research is coordinated.
The Center for Cancer Survivorship’s mission is to provide state-of-the-art care tailored to the unique needs of survivors, develop new knowledge around survivorship issues, and partner with communities to continue an ongoing learning dialogue with patients, family members and health care professionals to enhance the quality of life of cancer survivors.
Clinical programs of the Center for Cancer Survivorship:
The LITE Program provides long-term evaluation, support, and health education for the growing population of childhood cancer survivors. The successes in the treatment of childhood cancer have led to increasing survival rates.
The Survivorship Program provides long-term evaluation, support, and health education for adult cancer survivors.
