Survivorship

Print

Today, there are more than 14 million Americans alive with a history of cancer. After living with, through and beyond cancer, a person’s priorities regarding relationships, career or lifestyle may change. Cancer also deeply affects not only patients but their families, friends and caregivers.

The UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center facilitates many services and resources to support cancer survivors and their loved ones. Programs include those provided by Simms/Mann-UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology, the Pediatric and Adolescent Survivorship Clinic at UCLA, and the Avon Cares for Life Program and Athena Breast Health Network.
