Living with and beyond cancer
In this section you can find out about the experience of living with and beyond cancer by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Researchers reviewed our library of interviews with people who have survived for 5 years or more after a cancer diagnosis. Find out what people said about issues such as lifestyle choices, physical effects and impact on work and family. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.

"The latest section of healthtalk.org has proved again how sharing personal experiences can help make the transition to survivorship possible. 'Living with and Beyond Cancer' has a rich collection of patient's experiences which now covers such a wide range of issues that it cannot fail to be of great benefit to surviving patients, their families and carers alike."
