Survivorship Program

Your Cancer Journey Continues after Treatment

Cancer affects every part of your life. The experience has physical, mental, emotional, social and financial effects that don't go away once your treatment has ended.

At the UNM Cancer Center, we developed our Survivorship program with our patients in mind. Our goal is to get you back to the things you love. That means helping you, your caregivers, and your primary care team through the transition from patient to survivor.
