Follow-Up After Cancer Treatment (FACT) Program for Survivors
Cancer survivors and their families receive care and assistance beyond treatment.

She records a detailed history, performs physicals and orders relevant lab work and other diagnostics.
From this information, Laura creates comprehensive summaries of cancer treatment for survivorship follow-up in adherence to the Children's Oncology Group guidelines. She also coordinates follow-up for patients in clinical trials and works in collaboration with specialty practices.
Many adult survivors of pediatric and adolescent cancer may want to start a family. Laura is the oncofertility program coordinator and plays an integral role in assisting with referrals, education, care coordination and program development, helping patients and families navigate their options.
