Your Cancer Treatment Summary:

The Children’s Oncology Group Long-Term Follow up Guidelines (available at curesearch.org) recommend the following: “When you graduate to long-term follow up, it is important that you get a record of the cancer treatment that you received.”

  • This record, known as your Treatment Summary, will contain the following information about your treatment:
  • Name and total dose of each chemotherapy drug
  • Location and dose of any radiation
  • Type of surgery, if any
  • Dates of diagnosis, completion of all treatment, and any relapse
  • Date and type of bone marrow/stem cell transplant, if any

Based on this summary, appropriate testing and follow up care can be planned for each survivor.

You are your best advocate! We are here to help you find your way in this complex world of healthcare. Our goal is to meet the unique needs of childhood cancer survivors through prevention and wellness education.
