Survivor resources

  • At the Blank Children's Hospital Pediatric Cancer Survivorship Clinic, our mission is to provide quality comprehensive care and support for childhood cancer survivors. Through the coordinated efforts of a multidisciplinary team, we work to prevent, identify, and provide specialized services for late effects.

  • Cancer survivors require care that is specific to meet their unique and individual needs, assess for cancer recurrence and monitor late and long-term side effects, but also focus on wellness, prevention, health promotion, and quality of life. The goal of survivorship care is to optimize a patient’s quality of life by empowering them to want to be healthy and engage in healthy activities.

  • SurvivorLinkâ„¢ has been designed to increase awareness and knowledge about the life-long healthcare needs of pediatric cancer survivors, and increase communication about the specific healthcare needs of individual survivors between survivor and family, cancer survivor team, primary care provider, and healthcare subspecialis

  • The National Cancer Institute established the Office of Cancer Survivorship in order to provide a focus within the National Institute of Health for the support of research and education aimed at professionals who help survivors and the survivors themselves.
