Podcast Summary

Jonathan Jaques Children’s Cancer Center (JJCCC) at Miller Children’s & Women’s Hospital Long Beach doesn’t stop caring for patients with cancer and their families once their treatment is completed. Its survivorship program supports the unique needs of kids with cancer so they can thrive in school, work and at play after cancer treatment. Programs are also in place to help children deal with late effects of cancer treatment.
