Description
Approximately 20,000 new cases of childhood cancer are diagnosed each year. Until now, the families who receive this devastating news have had no one volume to turn to for up-to-date information, clear answers, and authoritative resource recommendations. To meet this need, clinicians and scientists at the world-famous St. Jude Children's Research Hospital have compiled the most comprehensive and compassionate family reference available. From practical matters, such as what tests to expect during diagnosis, treatment options for each kind of cancer, and the value and availability of clinical trials, to the emotional needs of children battling cancer and coping with life afterward, this invaluable guide will offer immeasurable comfort to parents and patients facing the family crisis of childhood cancer.Founded in 1962 by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, has treated more than 15,000 children from across the United States and more than sixty foreign countries. It is the first institution established for the sole purpose of conducting basic and clinical research into catastrophic childhood diseases, and is the largest childhood cancer research center in the United States.
