This really is a great idea, Brian. The long term effects of surviving cancer do not seem to be anyone's specialty in the medical field but they are issues that need to be addressed. And it seems that this is the best place to start - with those survivors who are currently experiencing it. It would also help caregivers, to have some idea of what might be ahead, health-wise and how to cope with it. Every time my son has some health issue I have to wonder how it might be connected to the after effects of his cancer treatment.
