Future Installments

During the month of September I'll be joining the CBCC for their Survivorship Challenge Training, which is the CBCC's 8-week running program for patients ages 7-18 and their families who are seen in the CBCC or in the Survivorship clinic. The program helps to reintroduce being active to the kids and their families, and it concludes with a 5k. I will also be profiling a couple of very unique adult survivors of childhood leukemia. Thank you for swinging by and stay tuned!
