    “Will my cancer come back?”

    “Will I ever be carefree again?”

    “Where can I find the psychosocial care I need?”

    “What about the side-effects of the treatment?”

    In cancer, #survivorship focuses on the health and well-being of a person with cancer from the time of diagnosis until the end of life. This includes the physical, mental, emotional, social, and financial effects of cancer that begin at diagnosis and continue through treatment and beyond.
    ⏰All.Can Belgium will host a #webinar on this essential topic on september 30th in the afternoon.
