Goal: 15,000 Progress: 1,315
Sponsored by: The Child Health Site

Having a child with cancer is one of the most frightening experiences a parent could have. By the same token, it is a call to rejoice when a child becomes a survivor of this deadly disease. But some don't realize it's not all smooth sailing following a clean bill of health.

Children with cancer often experience long-term side effects from the disease, its treatment, or both. So even if the cancer isn't present anymore, children can encounter harmful side effects like infertility later in life, poor memory, heart problems, and more. It can cause a lifetime of physical consequences.

That's why it's important that children who survive cancer know they will always have access to care they need. The Pediatric, Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Survivorship Research and Quality of Life Act would ensure funding for childhood cancer victims for life.

Support the sponsors of this bill in bringing lifetime care to childhood cancer survivors.

Dear Senators Jack Reed and Kay Bailey Hutchison, and Representatives Jackie Speier and Michael McCaul:

Thank you for being advocates for children who have battled with cancer. Your important work could help childhood cancer survivors have access to lifetime support.

The fact is, cancer isn't over once the doctor says it's no longer in one's system. Its mental and physical side effects remain; everything from hair loss, to depression, to infertility, to heart problems. Radiation and chemotherapy can often have lifetime implications for a child cancer survivor.

We need to make sure these children (and now adults) are able to find care for the residual effects of this disease. Please continue to fight on behalf of these brave kids.

Thank you.
