Survivorship

Cancer survivorship is about more than surviving your treatment or making the cancer go away forever. Survivorship is about living, and is something you and your treatment team should be thinking about from the time you are diagnosed, throughout your treatment and beyond. You are a survivor from the day you were diagnosed, and this section offers some information and resources to help you promote your survivorship.

Survivorship Toolkit

The Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO) and the Foundation for Women’s Cancer (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. Use our Seek a Specialist tool to find a gynecologic oncologist in your area.
