Treatment for cancer diagnosed during childhood or adolescence is now so successful that most children and adolescents will live long and fruitful lives.

However, the treatments that produce a cure in most children can be harsh and may have serious health consequences for otherwise healthy organs.

CanCare4Living and the Boyne Research Institute are sponsoring a SURVIVORSHIP MEETING in the Talbot Hotel, Carlow. The purpose of this meeting is to raise awareness of late effects including both health effects and psychosocial consequences for survivors, to discuss long-term follow-up, and to involve survivors in efforts to safeguard their own health.

Survivors of childhood and adolescent cancer, their families and friends are welcome.
Also professionals in the area from haematology and oncology and related fields are welcome.

Come join us – we’d love to hear from you !

DATE:  Thursday 3 May 2018

VENUE:  Talbot Hotel, Carlow 

TIME:  5.30 to 7.30 pm – Refreshments will be served.
