The cancer is a major health threat, which is considered as the third major cause of death. In old days, childhood cancer was a mortal threat. However, a revolution in medical technology and research work; life expectation is improved. Hence, from 1995 onward, there is increased 5-year survival rate particularly, in children treated with cancer and around 80% attain adulthood. Even in other cancers, recent treatment advances have increased survival rate. However; still there is a lack of awareness and consideration toward long-term consequences in increasing survivors. Hence, merely elimination of cancer from the body is not enough; there is a call to work collectively for the betterment of rest of the life for the survivors. The survivorship project considers the need of time, but narrow work force (8%) of qualified group is the main concern.
