The most important thing you can do as a childhood cancer survivor is to stay healthy. That’s why we created the StoryBook Homes Long-Term Follow-Up Clinic For Childhood Cancer Survivors. Thanks to a generous gift from the principals of StoryBook Homes, Wayne and Catherine Laska, the Long-Term Follow-Up Clinic is intended to help survivors — no matter where they received their treatment — navigate through the after effects of their treatment throughout their entire life.The Laska family made a $500,000 donation to the clinic as a result of the experience with their son’s late-effects.
Long-term follow up is particularly important for childhood cancer survivors, as many of thetreatments that allow patients to beat cancer can also lead to specific healthcomplications in the future – often referred to as “late effects.”
The StoryBook Homes Long-Term Follow-Up Clinic for Childhood Cancer Survivors educates each patient on specific risks from their treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Knowing the possible risks will allow patients to better monitor their health, address any complications early, and live a healthy and informed life
Every patient of the Long-Term Follow-Up clinic undergoes a comprehensive visit and is seen by one of our Board-Certified Pediatric Hematology-Oncology providers, a Pediatric Neuropsychologist, a Social Worker, and an Education Specialist.
We provide health monitoring specific to your needs, based on a number of factors, including medical exam, risk of long-term “late-effects”, type of treatment received, age, and gender.
After utilizing the clinic, each patient receives a binder containing all the details and specific cancer treatments each patient received, as well as the possible future health risks those treatments may cause. This information is intended to make the patient aware of any possible risks, and should be shared with all future medical providers who can also monitor for these health concerns.
Patients are eligible for Long-Term Follow-Up services two years after their final cancer treatment. To make an appointment at the Long-Term Follow-Up Clinic, or for additional information, call (702) 732-1493.
As a program of Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, our services are provided to patients with and without medical insurance, as well as to those unable to pay for treatment.
