Cancer Survivorship

Who is a cancer survivor?

The North Dakota Cancer Coalition uses the term 'survivorship' as the experience of the individual, family members, friends and caregivers living with, through or beyond cancer. A continual, ongoing process that begins at the moment of diagnosis and continues for the remainder of life. It is composed of stages or phases of survival.
