New Music Project Promotes Quality-of-Life After Cancer

'What's next?' is a question that enters the minds of many cancer survivors. After treatment, as life begins to reorder itself and adjust into what policy makers now // consider a chronic condition, survivors need to stay informed and become empowered self-advocates making daily conscientious choices to ensure quality-of-life.

"Remission is not a cure," says SFL founder Matthew Zachary-a 10-year survivor of pediatric brain cancer. "There are consequences for 'surviving' cancer long after the doctor says, 'You're cured. Go home.'. Survivorship is an art on both sides of the co
