Overview

More than 325,000 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.

The third edition of Childhood Cancer Survivors charts the territory for survivors by providing state-of-the-art information about:

  • Medical late effects from treatment
  • Emotional aspects of surviving cancer
  • Schedules for follow-up care
  • Challenges in the heathcare system
  • Lifestyle choices to maximize health
  • Discrimination in employment or insurance

Woven throughout the text are stories from more than 100 survivors and parents. Authors Keene, Hobbie, and Ruccione are experts in the field of childhood cancer. Keene is the mother of a survivor of childhood leukemia and the author of several books including Childhood Leukemia, Childhood Cancer, Educating the Child with Cancer, and Chemo, Craziness & Comfort.
