Survivorship

 

 

Fact

“The health consequences of cancer treatment are relevant for many years beyond cure. In one large retrospective cohort study, at 25 years after their diagnosis, 66% of adult survivors of child and adolescent cancers (up to 21 years of age at diagnosis) were shown to have at least one chronic health condition; 33% had a chronic health condition classified as severe or life threatening.”
