Welcome to the Ped-Onc Resource Center, a web site for parents, friends, and families of children who have or had childhood cancer. This resource center was created by and for people who know young people who are recovering from cancer. Most of the contributors to this site are members of the ACOR pediatric cancer mailing lists, especially ped-onc, ped-onc-survivors, and ALL-kids.

Special announcements:

Researchers at CU Boulder invite young adults ages 18-30 who had cancer in childhood to participate in an interview study about their past and present thoughts and experiences in regards to becoming young adults.

The third edition of Childhood Cancer: A Parent's Guide to Solid Tumor Cancers, Sep 1, 2016 by Anne Spurgeon and Nancy Keene, is now available. More information at Childhood Cancer Guides.
