About Judy DiMarzo Cancer Survivorship Program

Established at Wilmot Cancer Institute, the Judy DiMarzo Cancer Survivorship Program helps those who have been diagnosed with cancer receive the care they need even after treatment ends. Cancer survivorship experts staff the program, which works to help patients to better understand the treatment they’ve received, guides patients toward programs that can help them in life as a cancer survivor, explain possible signs and symptoms of disease recurrence, among other areas. The program was made possible by a gift from Judy’s Fund Hope for Cancer Survivors, established by Richard DiMarzo after the loss of his wife, Judy, to lymphoma.
