At 40, Survivor Deals with Side Effects of Childhood Cancer
When Joey Evans was 2, doctors discovered he had rhabdomyosarcoma, a tissue cancer in his bladder that spread quickly. It was the beginning of a long journey for Evans, who spent a lot of time at Cincinnati Children's and considers it the place he grew up. The staff at Cincinnati Children's helped him survive childhood cancer, and his care team continues to see him for health problems that have followed him into adulthood. The Cancer Survivor Center helps him deal with the side effects of childhood cancer. Evans, now 40, has fond memories of his caregivers. He even ended up marrying a nurse.
