MAINTAIN RECORDS FOR CHILDREN

The Journey

It is important to keep a record of the cancer treatment that your child receives and provide copies to all doctors or other health care providers involved with follow-up care, even as your child grows into adulthood. This record should include: • The type and stage of cancer • Dates of diagnosis, any relapses, and when treatment ended • Types and dates of imaging tests and any surgeries • Contact information for the hospitals and doctors who provided treatment • Names and total doses of all chemotherapy drugs used in treatment • The parts of the body that were treated with radiation and the total doses of radiation that were given • Any other cancer treatments received • Any serious complications that occurred during treatment and how those complications were treated
