Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Program (SMRCP)

After Treatment and Survivorship


An individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis, through the balance of his or her life.*

Family members, friends, and caregivers are also impacted by the survivorship experience and are therefore included in this definition.

You may not personally relate to the term "cancer survivor"-maybe you like the term "champion" better, or no term at all- but many use the term survivor to describe those who take an active and positive role in their own care. 



*Cancer survivor definition adapted from: American Office of Cancer Survivorship, National Cancer Institute
