In Reply We thank Heathcote et al1 for their reply to the recent Viewpoint calling for action in cancer survivorship.2 We were heartened at the response to the call to action from practitioners and cancer survivors who responded to us directly, including faculty within our own medical center. These responses support the comments from Heathcote et al advocating that “better survivorship care must think outside the confines of the biomedical model alone.” Survivorship care indeed extends beyond the walls of the oncologist’s office. Heathcote et al state that “mindsets matter,” a statement with which we concur.
