Long Term Follow-Up Clinic at William Beaumont Hospital
Children surviving cancer are true superheroes. In 2012-14, funds raised at the Birmingham Bike Festival (where all participants were encouraged to dress as superheros) were partially directed to the Pediatric Oncology Long Term Follow Up Clinic at Beaumont Hospital.
Thankfully, many children undergoing treatment for their cancers survive. Unknown to many of us, these survivors often times face health issues down the road related to their prior cancer treatment. This clinic provides the assessment and care of these individuals. Support for these services is crucial; often they are not covered by health insurances. Funds from D2N also supported college scholarships for the survivors.
