Restoring Quality of Life after a Cancer Diagnosis

When someone is diagnosed with cancer, it is natural to focus on one thing: treating the disease as quickly and effectively as possible. But at Cincinnati Children’s, we focus on the big picture, too. This means paying close attention to how cancer and cancer therapy may affect a person’s ability to learn, play, walk, talk and enjoy life. When problems arise, outpatient rehabilitation therapy can make a big difference for most children and young adults. But some people need a more intensive approach. For these patients, we offer inpatient rehabilitation through our Pediatric Cancer Rehabilitation Specialty Program who also works collaboratively with the Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute. We are proud to have the distinction of being the first in the world to receive a CARF accreditation in pediatric cancer rehabilitation.
