Cancer survivors include those who have been diagnosed with cancer and the people in their lives who are touched by the diagnosis. Survivorship begins the day of diagnosis and continues throughout life. It includes the physical, emotional, and practical issues of living with cancer.

The National Cancer Institute estimates that by the year 2020, there will be approximately 20 million cancer survivors. Issues faced by survivors go beyond the medical diagnosis and its treatment. To assist you with your survivorship needs, The James offers this folder of information with resources that you may need to help you along your cancer journey.

We know that survivorship is important and our goal is to offer you the information, support and resources you need to help you along your cancer journey. We are dedicated to providing personalized care to meet your unique needs and look forward to serving you.

More information can be found by e-mailing survivors@osumc.edu or by calling The James Line at 800-293-5066 (toll-free).
