A Practical Guide to Your Future, 3rd ed.
More than 420,000 children, teens, and adults in the United States are survivors of childhood cancer. The surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and stem cell transplants used to cure children can affect growing bodies and developing minds. If survivors know of these potential problems, they can take steps to identify, cope with, or treat them early if they do develop.
“Survivorship—something every parent whose child with cancer hopes they have to deal with! The good news is that with proper information, follow up, and care, these amazing survivors can fully expect to live happy and productive lives.”—Liz Scott, mother of Alex, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
