More than 250,000 children, teens, and adults are survivors of childhood cancer. The present high rate of cure for childhood cancer is a cause for celebration--children and their families faced adversity and triumphed.

18 Year Survivor and Counting!!!

I am an 18 year survivor of Osteoganic Sarcoma and I found this book to be one of the best and informative books I've ever read. I read things that I didn't even know about my disease or the long term late effects due to the chemotherapy I received. I will admit, at times it was TOO much information, but it was all factual and there were things that I read that I had to come to term with. I have an appointment at a Late Effects Clinic in a few weeks, and I am eager to get on with the rest of my life. A big Thank You to the authors who took so much time doing research and putting their own blood, sweat and tears into such an awesome project!!! Sincerely, Diane Trautman Smith

Childhood Cancer Survivors - a must read

Once again Nancy Keene provides information for patients and families that is just not available in this detail anywhere else. Her disease specific description of late effects and life after chemotherapy enables the reader to receive benefits that will effect for the rest of their lives. Information such as monitoring potential life threatening effects from treatment are just invaluable for the future of children surviving cancer and continuing into adulthood. I would urge any patient/parent/family member coming off active chemotherapy to pick up this book. Trust me you will have many, many book-marked pages. Our child just concluded his treatment and this book has not been very far from my side.

WOW! Just what I was looking for

I finished treatment for a chest wall Ewing's in 2000 and I have been looking for exactly what this book provides. It is simply fantastic. Being 21, I want and need to know about relationships, disclosure, fertility, post treatment side effects to watch for, employment issues, insurance issues, plus everything else in this book. It is the best $25 I have spent pertaining to survivorship of childhood cancer. I highly recommend this to be, at the very least, a starting point to knowing about your post-treatment needs and options.

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.
