University of Arizona Looks to Improve Cancer Survivor Lives

Surrounded by lawmakers, childhood cancer survivors and their families, President Trump turned legislation into law on Tuesday.

Cancer is still the leading cause of death by disease past infancy among children in the United States, with more than 10,000 children under the age of 14 being diagnosed within the previous year.

The proclamation was read as Saint Lucia commemorated National Cancer Survivors Day on Sunday June 3, 2018, with a gathering of members of Faces of Cancer Saint Lucia along with cancer survivors at Serenity Park in Castries, a release from the Mayor's office stated.

"We passed this law on behalf of every child who had to miss their graduation to attend chemotherapy sessions, or had to miss out on doing what they love in order to undergo another round of treatment", Reed said.

Students in Gadsden State Community College's Salon and Spa Management program spent June 5 providing free services to cancer survivors. The childhood cancer survivors are at a high risk of experiencing sleep issues and daytime sleepiness as compared to the normal adults, as stated by the research. Efforts that improve sleep might improve both health and quality of life in the long-term childhood cancer survivors.

Registries will identify and track incidences of cancer, allowing research to be more specific and locating the best places to seek treatment.

The release, citing the National Institutes of Health's (NIH) National Cancer Institute (NCI), said some progress has been made in pediatric cancer research, with deaths from childhood cancer declining by nearly 70 percent over the last four decades.

"[The cancer registry will] I think help a lot in support groups".

Senator Capito said that since she's on the appropriations committee, she's well placed to begin that fight.
