National Cancer Survivor Month
Please join Charleston Oncology and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in support of National Survivor Month, celebrating those who have fought the disease and those currently in treatment. Thanks to spectacular advances in cancer research, more than 18 million people in the United States are cancer survivors living with, through, and beyond their disease.
Who is a cancer survivor? According to the National Cancer Institute, an individual is considered a cancer survivor from diagnosis through the balance of their life. Every survivorship experience is unique as they may face challenges during and after treatments. At Charleston Oncology, we support and provide life-saving treatments and clinical trials to achieve quality life in your cancer journey years.
