Survivorship Toolkit

The SGO/FWC Survivorship Toolkit provides convenient resources to help you organize information about your diagnosis, treatment, and long-term follow-up.*

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and routine examinations are key to fighting recurrence. The following tools can be used in conjunction with information provided by your physician or cancer care team. You can also direct your health care provider to these resources so that they may be accurately completed and used. Seek a specialist near you.
