The Survivorship Network
Serving the needs of Connecticut's cancer survivors
There are an estimated 14 million cancer survivors living in the U.S. today, and an estimated 171,850 survivors in Connecticut. The long-term effects, or late effects, of cancer treatment can cause severe personal burdens to survivors and complicated stresses on the health care system. Both these personal burdens and systemic stresses can be mitigated with quality survivorship care. Survivorship care is about meeting the needs of survivors through planning, prevention and awareness. The CT Challenge Survivorship Network was created in 2009 to address the need for greater access to survivorship care for Connecticut's cancer survivors.
19 Connecticut hospitals and cancer centers are members of the Network. Click on a program below to learn more. For information on Network Membership, please contact Sharyn Taymor, Director of the Survivorship Network & Outreach.
