The long-term outcome for children with soft tissue and bone tumors is improving. How well each child does relies on a variety of factors, including the type of tumor and the spread of the disease beyond its point of origin (metastases) at diagnosis. Here at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, our research continues to help us understand the causes of cancer so we can develop more targeted, effective therapies.
To assist the many children successfully treated for malignant tumors, we have an established multidisciplinary, comprehensive long-term follow-up program through Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's David B. Perini Quality of Life Clinic. This program helps survivors address the medical, psychological and social consequences of their diagnosis and subsequent treatments. Childhood cancer survivors of any age are invited to visit our clinic.
