Editor's note: June is National Cancer Survivor Month. Consider sharing this article to recognize and celebrate the millions of adults and children in the U.S. who have been diagnosed with cancer.

People with cancer are living longer due to improved care, screening and newer treatments. The term "cancer survivor" identifies a community of people with a history of cancer, either at the time of diagnosis, or during or after treatment. The effects of cancer do not end when treatment does.
Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute-designated, three-site center dedicated to improving the lives of cancer patients and their communities. Staff of the Stephen and Barbara Slaggie Family Cancer Education Center, located in Rochester, Minnesota, are committed to providing the latest education and resources to help cancer survivors be active partners in their health journey.
The Cancer Education Center will kick off a free Survivorship Webinar Series on July 6 to address the needs of those who have survived cancer.
