Surviving breast cancer takes strength, and each survivor is part of a dedicated, driven and determined group. Though adjusting to daily life after breast cancer might be simple for some, others may need additional support. That's why MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando, a part of Orlando Health, is proud to introduce the Survivorship Clinic, a follow-up program for cancer survivors.

The Survivorship Clinic is designed to make the transition from treatment to daily life more comfortable while offering consistent, high-quality care. This follow-up program provides care to patients who have survived cancer, are in long-term therapy to prevent cancer from coming back or those at high risk of developing breast cancer. 

Together with MD Anderson – Orlando specialists, the Survivorship Clinic Care Team develops a personalized care plan for each patient’s ongoing healthcare needs. This plan incorporates communication from a healthcare provider with specific services designed for breast cancer survivors.
