9781457118678: Childhood Cancer Survivors: A Practical Guide to Your Future

More than 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. If survivors know of these potential problems, they can take steps to identify, cope with, or treat them early if they do develop.

The third edition of Childhood Cancer Survivors charts the territory for survivors by providing state-of-the-art information about:

  • Medical late effects from treatment
  • Emotional aspects of surviving cancer
  • Schedules for follow-up care
  • Challenges in the heathcare system
  • Lifestyle choices to maximize health
  • Discrimination in employment or insurance

Woven throughout the text are stories from more than 100 survivors and parents. Authors Keene, Hobbie, and Ruccione are experts in the field of childhood cancer. Keene is the mother of a survivor of childhood leukemia and the author of several books including Childhood Leukemia, Childhood Cancer, Educating the Child with Cancer, and Chemo, Craziness & Comfort. Hobbie is Associate Director of the Cancer Survivorship Program at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Ruccione is Co-Director of the HOPE (Hematology-Oncology Psychosocial and Education) Program in the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Review:

“This is a very useful book for both survivors and their families.” – Library Journal, starred review and chosen as one of the “Best Consumer Health Books of the Year”

“This extraordinary book speaks to all ages as it describes the world of childhood cancer ... In an easy-to-read and well-organized format, the book is packed with facts about the emotional upheavals and drastic changes in both mental and physical health of young patients during treatment and long after the cancer has been cured.” – Surviving: A Cancer Patient Magazine, Stanford Hospital and Clinics

“This book will fill a critical educational gap by providing childhood cancer survivors practical and up-to-date information regarding their cancer and treatment. Perhaps of equal value are the many poignant vignettes that describe the trials and victories of the cancer experience. I consider this book a ‘must read’ for the survivors followed in our long-term follow-up program.” – Kevin C. Oeffinger, MD, Director, Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Adult Long-Term Follow-Up Program

“This is a wonderful resource for childhood cancer survivors ... With information comes power, and with the information in this book, childhood cancer survivors will be empowered to take an active role in their life-long medical follow-up. In some cases, this information could be life-saving!” – Wendy Landier, PhD, RN, University of Alabama at Birmingham

“This 456-page paperback is a must-read, must-have not only for any survivors of childhood cancer, family members, caregivers, but also healthcare providers to this courageous population, particularly so for primary care providers and mental health providers...I would order several copies for any patient library or as giveaways for new patients and families.” – Kimberly Lawson, Association of Oncology Social Work Newsletter

"Childhood Cancer Survivors is among eight books sent to LLS chapters this summer for patient services managers and other chapter staff to use for their own reference or to recommend or loan to patients and caregivers.” – eNewsLine, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

“Early treatment and detection is key to protecting the life you fought hard to save, say the creators of Childhood Cancer Survivors: A Practical Guide to Your Future. The third edition of the guide was released in July, with potentially life-saving tips for the estimated 60 percent of pediatric cancer patients who will have to cope with medical late effects of treatment.” – Hope Chest Newsletter, Children’s Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation
