Care for children and adolescents with cancer does not end with survival. The goal of the Cancer Survivor Program is for our patients to not only thrive but survive. Improvements in therapy have produced an increasing population of childhood cancer survivors. Sometimes this curative therapy can impact a cancer survivor’s health and quality of life years after finishing treatment. The Cancer Survivor Program offers social workers and neuropsychologists to provide support for childhood cancer survivors. In addition, there are several community-based programs for cancer survivors.
