Also included are personal stories from more than 100 survivors and parents and a Foreword by Giulio D'Angelo, MD, congratulating the authors for writing a “uniquely comprehensive review of the late effects problem while providing a manual of how to look after the long-term survivor.”

The 480-page large-size paperback book (ISBN-10 #145711867X) also includes a pullout “Taking Care of Yourself for Life” Cancer Survivor's Treatment Record.
