cancer survivorship

Cancer touches everyone. About half of all men and one-third of all women in the United States will develop some form of cancer during their lifetimes. More than 1.5 million new cancer cases are diagnosed each year, and there are millions of people living who have survived cancer. 

Jazz musician and composer Zac Greenberg’s album Unexpected Journey was recorded live at The Redmoor in Mt. Lookout last April, during a fundraiser for the Barrett Cancer Center at the University of Cincinnati. 

  There are approximately 14.5 million cancer survivors in the United States. Once their treatment for cancer ends, many of these individuals find it difficult to make the transition to what becomes their new normal, where they must adjust to new feelings, new problems, and different ways of looking at the world. To help these survivors,  a new field of cancer care called cancer survivorship has evolved.
