Being a cancer survivor can mean different things to different people. Some say a patient becomes a survivor at first diagnosis. Others may feel one must complete a treatment regimen and be "cancer free" to be considered a survivor.

Jefferson's free Cancer Survivorship Conference will help you understand what it means to be a cancer survivor and what to expect from your cancer diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.

Current patients, cancer survivors and loved ones who have lived with a cancer diagnosis or have undergone cancer treatment at Jefferson are invited to attend.
