St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital-led national study finds that brief telephone counseling by advanced-practice nurses prompts more childhood cancer survivors to get recommended heart screenings. (Melissa Hudson, MD)
For childhood cancer survivors, regular heart checkups can save lives. Yet despite the potential benefits, many survivors fail to get recommended checkups on schedule.
Cancer survivors learn to be proactive about their health.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital study identifies the need for proactive, life-long medical follow-up and provides the most complete health picture yet of adult survivors of childhood cancer. (Dr. Melissa Hudson)
In 1986, Eric Blumer’s life was spared. Now he puts it on the line every day. “I love being a police officer,” says Blumer, who began treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital when he was 5 years old. “Being an officer is my way of giving back.”
St. Jude researchers have developed a simple, effective method for identifying young cancer survivors who are most likely to start using tobacco and who might benefit most from prevention efforts.
The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is recommended to protect against cervical cancer, but St. Jude researchers suspect even high-risk childhood cancer survivors need encouragement to get immunized.
Adults who survived childhood cancer return to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to celebrate victory over disease and mark the After Completion of Therapy (ACT) Clinic’s 25th anniversary.
Scientists at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital who represent the interdisciplinary team studying acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) have been recognized by the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) with the AACR Team Science Award.
Children with low-risk Hodgkin disease can be cured using cancer drugs that have only minimal or no toxicity, combined with low doses of radiation, according to St. Jude researchers.
The combination of chemotherapy and irradiation provides excellent local control of Hodgkin disease in children and young adults, according to results of two prospective studies at St. Jude.
Exercise during early adolescence helps restore and maintain the proper density of bone minerals in survivors of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
Through the After Completion of Therapy (ACT) Clinic, St. Jude follows its more than 4,000 survivors who have lived cancer free for at least 5 years since completing therapy.
Led by a St. Jude investigator, national experts have established a new set of guidelines that hold the promise of reducing illness and death among adult survivors of childhood cancers.
Ten-year-old Rodrick Thompson of Memphis loves playing dodge ball, basketball and hide-and-go-seek. He loves eating pizza and reading books. And he loves coming to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for his yearly checkups.
A new study from St. Jude indicates that survivors of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia who have not received radiation treatment as part of their therapy have virtually the same long-term life experiences as the general population.
