Surviving childhood cancer -- the success story
Date:1/4/2008

The special issue, available free online until March, presents key articles of interest to caregivers and those who suffer from childhood cancer; articles that:

  • consider the history of leukemia, and how different societies have looked at the ethics of using chemotherapy on children

  • describe new research based on identifying the many variations of cancer, making it possible for treatment to target these sub-types more precisely

  • show how the cancer experience is different for kids (compared to adults), how teens with cancer experience discrimination and stigma in public, and what can be done to improve the overall experience of young patients

Childhood cancer remains an important threat to life it is the second leading cause of death in children, exceeded only by accidents, writes Mary Dixon-Woods, Chronic Illness editor. However, it is increasingly important to understand what it means to live with cancer and what it means to survive it. We are perhaps not used to thinking of cancer as a chronic illness, but our special issue suggests that a new approach to how we view cancer may well be needed.
