Self-help –
advising and supporting survivors

Cancer often accompanies long-term survivors and their parents for the rest of their lives due to the late effects. Many survivors are confronted with further challenges even after successful treatment. These can have far-reaching effects on the lives of those affected, who often feel left alone with their worries and fears. To remedy this situation, Childhood Cancer Switzerland offers information and networking services for survivors and parents of survivors.
