Overview

More than 250,000 children, teens, and adults are survivors of childhood cancer.

    A Survivor's Dream

    This book is a wonderful resource for survivors of all types of cancer, their families and friends. My son was so young when first diagnosed, but the effects of his treatment for leukaemia and a Bone Marrow Transplant will be far reaching, and this book will help him enormously to understand what he has been through, and what long-term medical follow-up he will need. The book manages to address all the issues, but at the same time there is so much that is positive in it too, with lots of quotes from survivors making it personal and full of heart. A book like this usually only exists in your dreams, I was delighted to find that the authors had actually turned it into a reality.

    Childhood Cancer Survivors

    As a survivor of an adolescent cancer, this is the book I have been waiting for over the last thirty years. The information here is concise, well organized, readable and well presented. The authors do a great job of pulling together diverse and disparate medical research and setting it out for the lay reader. The book is compassionately tied together by the many stories of survivors who lend their voices and experiences to what might otherwise be overwhelming medical information. This is a book that every survivor of childhood/adolescent cancer should have.
