Kristi Elder lived cancer free for 12 years after treatments in her mid-20s for a rare cancer. While coming to Penn for routine follow-up, a staff member recognized that Kristi could benefit from our survivorship program. In Kristi's first visit with our Living Well after Cancer program, she and the Director, Linda Jacobs, PhD, CRNP, simply talked for over an hour about her life. Kristi received personal counseling and referrals to specialists to deal with specific side effects from her cancer treatment. This past year, Kristi was again diagnosed with the same form of cancer. Her physician at Penn has enrolled her in a clinical trial, and she credits the Living Well After Cancer program with bringing her to a place emotionally and physically where she can handle this recurrence and be hopeful about the future.
