Our 24/7 cancer helpline provides information and answers for people dealing with cancer. We can connect you with trained cancer information specialists who will answer questions about a cancer diagnosis and provide guidance and a compassionate ear.
Our highly trained specialists are available 24/7 via phone and on weekdays can assist through video calls and online chat. We connect patients, caregivers, and family members with essential services and resources at every step of their cancer journey. Ask us how you can get involved and support the fight against cancer. Some of the topics we can assist with include:
For medical questions, we encourage you to review our information with your doctor.
The following information was developed by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), and is presented on cancer.org as part of a collaboration between the American Cancer Society and ASCO. Both organizations have long shared a commitment to empowering people with information about cancer they can trust. Learn more about this collaboration and how it will help advance that goal.

After active treatment for cancer ends, it is helpful to keep a record of the cancer treatments you received and the follow-up care plan recommended by your doctor. The American Society of Clinical Oncology developed two forms that can help you keep track of this important information so it can be easily shared with health care providers who care for you throughout your lifetime.
The ASCO Cancer Treatment Plan organizes basic information about your cancer care history. This includes treatments you received, medication doses, surgeries, and any additional treatment that was given.
The ASCO Survivorship Care Plan organizes information about your recommended follow-up care plan. This includes how often you should have check-ups, the types of tests you will need, and the potential long-term late effects of the cancer treatments you received. It also provides suggestions for healthy living.
These forms are not intended to provide a complete medical record. No single treatment or survivorship care plan is appropriate for all patients due to the complexity of cancer care. Talk with your doctor for more information about your individual treatment and follow-up care. Use the ASCO Cancer Treatment Plan and Survivorship Care Plan with the guidance of your doctor.

If the templates will be altered in any way, including the addition of institutional branding, ASCO requires that all ASCO identifiers be removed.
