About Our Program
Up to two-thirds of childhood cancer survivors experience late effects. Most remain unaware of their health risks and unfamiliar with how to reduce them. Valley Children's created our Childhood Cancer Survivorship Program -- the only one of its kind in the region -- to serve this at-risk population by providing them needed education, support and treatment.
Established in December 2009, the primary goals of our Childhood Cancer Survivorship Program are:
- To promote healthy lifestyles for former cancer patients as they enter adulthood
- To advance research efforts to discover the most effective treatments for cancer cure with the smallest incidence of late effects on survivors
