Cancer can change your life in unexpected ways. You may need to understand side effects, take part in physical therapy, or seek additional support to manage the emotional impact cancer has had on your life.
Recovery takes time and you do not have to experience it alone. Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center is here to help you thrive after cancer treatment and to provide continuing recovery and follow-up support for years to come.
Fred Hutch offers screenings, prevention recommendations and help with after effects of your cancer and treatment.
We encourage you to participate in one of our follow-up programs for cancer survivors. While your cancer may be cured, there may be long-term effects from it or its treatment. As a survivor, you are at higher risk for a secondary cancer; Fred Hutch can help you manage that risk.
The Fred Hutch Survivorship Clinic offers treatment, support, and education after cancer treatment is complete for adults.
Regardless of whether you were treated for cancer at Fred Hutch or at another medical facility, you can meet with our providers and receive a Survivorship Care Plan, which contains resources and support information particular to your needs.
The Fred Hutch Long-Term Follow-up Program provides life-long monitoring and care for people who have had a bone marrow, stem cell transplant or cellular immunotherapy.
Women's Wellness Clinic
The Fred Hutch Women's Wellness Clinic is for women who have completed cancer treatment or who are at high risk of developing breast or a gynecologic cancer.
Sarcoma Surveillance Clinic

Survivorship Events & Education
Education and community are important aspects of life as a cancer survivor. We provide support to patients and their family as well as education to health-care professionals working with patients after their cancer treatments.
Childhood cancer survivors
Our alliance partner, Seattle Children's, offers the Cancer Survivor Program for survivors of childhood cancers. The program helps children, teens and young adults stay health after cancer treatment.
There are clinical trials for survivors interested in participating in studies that promote long-term survivorship.
