New Normal: Coping with Cancer

Life after cancer treatment does not always return to "normal."  Cancers and cancer treatments can have long-lasting effects.

New Normal is a free, confidential service which puts people who have finished breast or colorectal cancer treatment in touch with a trained volunteer who knows about post-treatment challenges and concerns. Volunteers can also suggest helpful resources.
