Over the past several decades, physicians and scientists around the world have made considerable progress in the battle against childhood cancers. Studies show that a majority of pediatric cancer survivors go on to lead full, healthy lives.
At Memorial Sloan-Kettering, we are committed to helping childhood cancer survivors maintain the highest possible level of health. To monitor the diverse needs of survivors, we have developed two follow-up programs.
Our Long-Term Follow-Up Program is available to children and teenagers who have been off cancer treatment for approximately two years. Our program for Adult Survivors of Childhood Cancer supports adults transitioning from the Long-Term Follow-Up Program or those who have survived a childhood cancer in their adult years.
