Childhood Cancer Survivors: A Practical Guide to Your Future.

Library Journal *starred* review.

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. Two-thirds of survivors have late effects from treatment––20% of which are life threatening or disabling.

Our book helps survivors learn about these potential problems, so they can identify, cope with, or treat them early if they do develop. Woven throughout the text are practical and poignant stories from 100 survivors and their families.
