Survivors of childhood cancer can protect their health during and after cancer treatment by making healthy choices like staying active, eating right, and getting regular healthcare exams from someone familiar with their unique health history. The CBCC staff is here to help patients  through the cancer journey and survivorship.

  • By participating in CBCC events, patients and their families can have fun with other patients and families while building a strong support system. Events include the annual St. Baldrick’s Fair, Hungry Bunch teen support, Survivor Challenge physical activity group and special holiday parties.
  • Psychologists are available in the CBCC Embedded Behavioral Health Clinic to provide emotional support to patients, siblings and their families and caregivers.
  • The CBCC Psychosocial Team provides services to support the academic needs of patients and target late effects of cancer treatment that impede learning.
  • To maintain good health after cancer, it’s important for cancer survivors to get regular health exams from someone familiar with their unique history and treatment. Two years after treatments end, CBCC patients will begin annual visits to the CBCC Survivorship Clinic. The CBCC survivorship team will enroll survivors into Passport for Care®  to create an online survivorship care plan that documents their medical history and identifies their individual risks for late effects from cancer treatment. Survivors will have access to their online records and will be able to provide their medical histories to all doctors who care for them throughout their lifetimes.
  • Once CBCC survivorship patients turn 18, they are transitioned to the Seton Cancer Survivor Center.
