The Long-Term Impact of Childhood Cancer on Adult Survivors and Their Families


When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the whole family is affected. Feelings of worry, guilt, sadness, and anger can have lasting effects on how survivors and family members view their role in the family and relate to one another. Adult survivors of childhood cancer and their family members are invited to join this presentation that will look at the long-term impact of childhood cancer on family relationships and consider ways for family members to support one another even years after treatment has ended. There will be opportunity for Q&A and for participants to share their stories.
