    Although cancer in children is rare, it is estimated that 10,700 children (including 1,000 Texans) aged 0-14 years are diagnosed with cancer each year.  While more than 80% of these children are expected to be long-term survivors of their malignancy, 62.3% of these patients will experience some late effect of the illness and/or treatment.  Often these issues will not become apparent until many years after completing therapy.  This course focuses on possible late effects of childhood cancer survivors.

    Good module. Enjoyed the personal story at the end. I am a pathologist, though, so I do not deal directly with patients. - James (Amarillo, TX)
