Childhood Cancer Survivors: A Practical Guide to Your Future
More than 250,000 children, teens, and adults are survivors of childhood cancer. The present high rate of cure for childhood cancer is a cause for celebration--children and their families faced adversity and triumphed. The surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy used to cure children can affect growing bodies and developing minds. If young people know of these potential problems, they can take steps to identify, cope with, or treat them early if they do develop.
Childhood Cancer Survivors charts the territory of long-term survivorship:
Authors Keene, Hobbie, and Ruccione are experts in the field of childhood cancer. They have written, spoken, and advocated about all aspects of survivorship. Importantly, they have also talked to hundreds of survivors, with a wide range of issues and triumphs, and have included many of their stories.
