Cancer

Cancer is when normal body tissues change into abnormal cells and grow uncontrollably. Almost any body part can develop cancer. These abnormal cells can move through fluid such as blood, lymph, or spinal fluid to other parts of the body. This is called metastasis.

Topics within childhood cancers include:

  • acute lympoblastic leukemia (ALL)
  • acute myelogenous leukemia (AML)
  • astrocytoma
  • bone cancer
  • chemotherapy
  • chronic myelocytic leukemia (CML)
  • complementary therapies for cancer
  • Ewing's sarcoma
  • Hodgkin's disease
  • osteogenic sarcoma
  • parent with cancer
  • radiation
  • school re-entry
  • soft-tissue sarcoma
  • Wilms' tumor
