Beyond Cancer Podcast – Episode #6: When Treatment Ends

Treatment ends. And you’re home free. That’s what many friends and family think. But cancer patients know that the time after your treatment ends can be unsettling. While the physical and logistical challenges of managing chemotherapy, radiation or surgery may be behind you, the prospect of dealing with cancer without the safety net of weekly, or even daily, contact with your care team can be daunting.
