Living past leukemia: Survivorship and lasting side effects

When cancer therapy is over, patients should obtain a copy of their treatment summary and schedule an appointment with a survivorship clinic. Having a treatment summary is especially important for children, said Dr. Erik Chow, an associate professor of pediatrics at Seattle Children’s, the UW and Fred Hutch, and the chair of the survivorship committee for the Children’s Oncology Group, “because everyone has to grow up eventually and get care from either a family practice or internal medicine doctor, and they won’t always be seen by a pediatric oncologist.”
