This past year has been an eventful, truly wonderful one for CANCER NURSING. We are so grateful for all of our exceptionally talented authors who continue to provide us with such remarkable papers. Our theme issue, Volume 36, Issue 5 (September/October), was also a tremendous success and was presented at the 2013 SIOP meeting.
We wanted to do a little something special in honor of our authors who published literature reviews in 2013 issues of CANCER NURSING; therefore, we have here compiled a mini-collection of their papers. Please enjoy reviewing these articles once more.
