'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.
