Survivorship Today: What It's Like to Live with Cancer
An initiative by Bristol-Myers Squibb, Survivorship Today aims to share stories of people across the country who have been affected by cancer and advance our collective understanding of what it’s like to live with the disease today. We’re working with those featured to call attention to their personal triumphs and challenges, because with greater understanding, we can inspire more action and better support.
