Information on Life after Cancer Now Available on NIHSeniorHealth.gov – 2
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. There are more than 11 million cancer survivors in the U.S. and more than half of them are age 65 and older. This is just one issue addressed in the new “Life after Cancer” topic on the NIHSeniorHealth website.
Rowland: And one of the reasons that we've developed that is because realized that for many individuals who were diagnosed and treated for cancer many questions arrive as treatment ends.
Narrator: Dr. Julia Rowland is the director of the Office of Cancer Survivorship at the National Cancer Institute.
Rowland: What we are trying to do with this site is provide information that will be helpful to individuals in making that transition from being an active patient to picking up their lives and recovering after that history of care.
Narrator: To learn more about cancer survivorship for older adults, visit the website www.NIHSeniorHealth.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
