Childhood Cancer Survivorship

The Childhood Cancer Survivorship Clinic at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital is a comprehensive clinic for those who have overcome their battle with cancer. As advances in detection and treatment of childhood cancers are helping thousands of children live longer, the short and long-term effects of cancer have impacted patient's lives in many ways including, physically, psychologically, educationally, cognitively, vocationally, spiritually, socially and financially. Our multidisciplinary clinic is staffed by physicians, nurse practitioners, nurse coordinators, social workers and psychologists dedicated to care for you. The Childhood Cancer Survivorship Clinic's mission is focused on maximizing each survivor's quality of life. We are dedicated to working together with each patient and family to ensure that all your individual needs, questions and concerns are met.

While this is a comprehensive clinic a complete assessment of your medical history will be reviewed with you. We offer educational resources, and prepare a treatment summary specific to you. This summary will be provided to you upon your departure from clinic which will include a list of diagnostic testing and/or blood work needed, as well as a referral to any specialists if needed. During your clinic visit you will also be able to meet with a social worker to discuss your educational goals and plans for the future. The first visit often results in a very informative, but lengthy appointment. With survivorship and wellness at the root of your clinic visit you will be able to take away vital information from your past for your future, and then share this with your primary care physician.
