In an effort to give you the best possible service, we would be grateful if you could take a few minutes of your time to answer a few questions.
Anxiety, fear and depression are normal to experience at any point in your survivorship journey. Cancer survivors sometimes find it challenging to cope with new limitations or side effects from their cancer diagnosis and treatment. It is important to remember that you’re not alone. Sharing your experiences with others through a support group or online forum can help improve your overall mental health.
Understanding that changes and challenges to your mental health are normal can help you identify when to seek assistance from a medical professional. In our needs assessment of over 800 of Georgia’s survivors, we found that many survivors are struggling with the emotional health aspect of survivorship and need assistance areas such as anxiety, depression, fear of recurrence, managing stress and more. As you explore our website, you’ll find that we have identified many resources that may be successful in helping improve the emotional aspect of survivorship. The Georgia Center for Oncology Research and Education (Georgia CORE) is committed to helping cancer survivors decrease or alleviate the impact of these concerns.

Cancer patients and survivors should not get COVID-19. A three-time cancer survivor should definitely not get COVID. But I did. And it was not good. Here is my story and the lessons I learned that might be of value to others.
Three women, three cancer survivorship journeys, three missions resulting in nonprofits started to help and support others fighting cancer.
Thanks to funding awarded by the Centers for Disease Control for five-years beginning July 2020, Georgia CORE and Augusta University are partners in the Georgia Colorectal Cancer Control Program, which is increasing CRC screenings in southeast and southwest Georgia.
