Get Empowered

Get Empowered is a video education for anyone who is still in treatment or a long-term survivor of childhood cancers. Treatment is just part of your cancer journey — learning to protect your health and embrace your survivorship is a lifelong job. Watch these videos to learn from the experiences of seven childhood cancer survivors and take the first step in becoming an empowered childhood cancer survivor.
