Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women, with 181,000 new breast cancer cases estimated in 2007. There are an estimated 2.3 million living breast cancer survivors, many of whom live in Komen Columbus' 23 designated counties. An individual is a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis, through the rest of their life. This includes family members, friends, and caregivers, underscoring that everyone's lives are potentially altered by the cancer experience. Through an individualized survivorship plan of care, breast cancer survivors can potentially minimize negative side effects and maximize healthy outcomes, with promotion of a healthy lifestyle, surveillance for cancer recurrence, and management of physical and psychological effects of the breast cancer experience. The Central Ohio Breast Cancer Survivorship Initiative is intended to create a professional and lay framework to promote key principles of breast cancer survivorship through education, screening, treatment, and support. This project focuses on the pivotal transition from active breast cancer treatment to active breast cancer follow-up, with attention to potential long-term side effects of treatment and incorporation of important survivorship initiatives into daily practice settings. Through this Komen grant, knowledge can be gained with incorporation of these important breast cancer survivorship initiatives into daily practice settings.
