Aftercure (late effects) factsheets

Our Aftercure factsheets provide information about specific late effects and can be downloaded below.

The factsheets are written to accompany our booklet 'Aftercure: A guide for teenage and young adult survivors of childhood cancer'. They are written, and regularly updated and reviewed, by our expert CCLG Late Effects Group. New factsheets will be added to this page as they become available.
