The Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Survivorship Program offers comprehensive care and management strategies for the unique challenges women treated for breast cancer face as they transition to post-treatment survivorship care. These issues include hot flashes, osteoporosis, fatigue, weight gain, depression, anxiety, cognitive impairment, sexual dysfunction, neuropathy, fertility problems and lymphedema.

A long term survivorship care plan, including a treatment summary, is developed with tailored recommendations for cancer surveillance and monitoring for possible late side effects from treatment. The program promotes bone and heart health, and emphasizes the importance of good nutrition and physical activity as part of a long-term survivorship care that will enable survivors to thrive after their cancer diagnosis and treatment. Referrals for nutrition counseling, cancer rehabilitation, and other specialty services are provided as needed.

The Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Survivorship Program is designed to help any woman diagnosed with breast cancer and supports the following concept from the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship: "From the moment of diagnosis through the balance of life, an individual diagnosed with cancer is a cancer survivor.
