The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to Fund Research Focused on Long-Term and Late Effects of Cancer Treatment
Date:9/14/2009

initiative is being led by Anna T. Meadows, M.D., medical director of the Cancer Survivorship and Living Well After Cancer Program at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Dr. Meadows is an internationally recognized pioneer in late effects research; she helped quantify the serious consequences of high-dose radiation and eliminate it from curative treatments for most children with leukemia and lymphoma.

"We must find the answers and test them as soon as possible," says Dr. Meadows. "We must be determined and courageous -- funders, researchers, and patients alike -- because survival is just the first part of the struggle to cure cancer; the quality of that survival matters."
