National Cancer Survivors Day

A national celebration for those who have survived, an inspiration for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of support for families and an outreach to the community. Read how our invited guest speaker Tim Harner, a cancer survivor, went from being a patient to running in the 2017 Boston Marathon.

Childhood Cancer Survivorship

The journey with childhood cancer changes the lives of survivors in many powerful and often positive ways. However, research has shown that two-thirds of childhood cancer survivors have complications, known as late effects, which can occur years after treatment ends.

The Childhood Cancer Survivorship Clinic at Penn State Children’s Hospital wants to showcase the ways those who have survived childhood cancer and their families are thriving.

The clinic educates survivors about ways to improve and maintain health and wellness, provides resources for young survivors, and offers stories of inspiration from fellow survivors who are thriving in their lives.
