Deb strongly believes that care well beyond the treatment of childhood cancer is pertinent. The patient needs multidisciplinary care provided to assist with the adjustment from on therapy to off therapy and to provide guidance for follow-up care. The need for continued follow-up after the completion of therapy and the transition well in to continued survivorship is necessary for the physical, emotional and social well being of our patients, family members and caregivers. While there have been remarkable strides made in cancer treatment there is much work and potential for research in the area of cancer survivorship.
