Goli Mostoufi-Moab, MD, MSCE, a dual-certified pediatric oncologist and endocrinologist at CHOP, has taken the lead to study endocrinopathies, affecting up to 40 to 60 percent of childhood cancer survivors.
The good news is that more children survive cancer now than ever before, with doctors able to cure nearly 80 percent of patients. But that doesn't mean that kids who survive cancer stop fighting once their treatment ends, because many face a variety of physical and emotional challenges as a result of their treatment.
Monrovia, Calif.-based St. Baldrick's Foundation recently announced $699,186 in grants to one consortium and three cancer researchers at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
