Ending cancer treatment is an exciting yet tricky transition for adolescents and young adults. But MSK keeps a close eye on these survivors as their physical, emotional, and social needs change over time. There are three survivorship clinics — each tailored to a specific age group — all guiding patients toward a healthy, happy future.
“We approach each case individually, taking into account where they are in their life,” says Danielle Novetsky Friedman, who runs survivorship programs for children and adults treated for pediatric cancer.
Having faced cancer at a young age, these patients learned how to be resilient. Here’s how they describe not only surviving but also thriving after receiving treatment at MSK.
