You’ve finished active treatment. Congratulations! It's very real to face this part of your journey with mixed feelings. You are relieved, but still unsure about what the future holds and how to fully embrace your "new normal". Life and your body has changed and your emotional outlook is different now. Some say the transition into post-treatment is where the real work begins. Don't hesitate to speak to your medical team, to reach out for counseling or to reach out to us if you are seeking support.
