Pediatric HEROS Survivorship Program
HEROS is Connecticut's first childhood cancer survivorship program. It is a positive, empowering program for young cancer survivors that focuses on screening and managing the potential long-term effects of childhood cancer treatment.
HEROS provides education and guidance to give survivors the tools they need to maximize their health, quality of life, and longevity as early as six months to one year out from treatment. We see anyone diagnosed with childhood cancer at or before the age of 21. We follow our survivors for life, without the need to transition to another clinic.
Our multidisciplinary team includes a pediatric oncologist, psychologist, pediatric nurse practitioner, nurse coordinator, and research coordinator.
