A newsletter for cancer survivors, by cancer survivors.
There are 16.9 million cancer survivors living in the United States today.
At MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper we believe you are a cancer survivor the moment you receive your cancer diagnosis. Whether you are newly diagnosed, currently receiving treatment, or a long-term survivor, we are here to support you throughout your journey.
Survivor Times newsletter is brought to you through The Dr. Diane Barton Complementary Medicine Program. Survivor Times brings stories of inspiration and hope, informative articles on topics related to cancer diagnosis, treatment, and side effects, and support your overall health and well-being.
The Dr. Diane Barton Complementary Medicine Program offers unique and diverse programs that are designed to help cancer survivors cope with the stress and anxiety of their diagnosis and alleviate some of the side effects of treatment. Our use of evidence-based integrative and complementary therapies supports mainstream medical care by targeting the three pillars of a healthy lifestyle — nutrition, physical activity, and emotional health — and focusing in on the mind, body, and spirit connection to overall well-being. These programs offer patients access to social, educational, and support opportunities, and they allow survivors to connect, share experiences, and draw encouragement from one another. Reaching out and interacting with your care team and other cancer survivors can help make a positive difference in your cancer journey. All programs are free for cancer survivors.
