Childhood Cancer Survivors: A Practical Guide to Your Future
By Nancy Keene, Wendy Hobbie, Kathy Ruccione
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. Childhood Cancer Survivors charts the territory for survivors by providing helpful information about:
- Medical late effects
- Follow-up care
- Staying healthy
- Jobs and insurance
Woven throughout the text are true stories—practical, poignant, moving, funny—from more than 100 survivors of childhood cancer.
