Webinar: Long Term Survivorship Outcomes For Children Battling Low-Grade Glioma Brain Tumors

  • Dr. Mark Kieran Presents: Long Term Survivorship Outcomes For Children Battling Low-Grade Glioma Brain Tumors 

    Our recent survivorship research study (http://www.danafarberbostonchildrens.org/News/Long-Term-Survival-Among-Patients-with-Most-Common-Childhood-Brain-Tumor.aspx) revealed breakthrough findings that help guide treatment options for children battling low grade glioma brain tumors. Dr. Mark Kieran – Clinical Director of the Brain Tumor Center at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, Co-Director of the Pediatric Low Grade Astrocytoma Research Program, and co-author of the new study – presents the long-term survivorship findings and discusses the implications for future treatment decisions. This unprecedented study finally quantifies what outcomes look like for children with low-grade gliomas who have undergone the front-line treatment protocols (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation). Understanding the long-term impacts of treatments – and taking an active role in making treatment decisions – helps parents of children battling low-grade gliomas to ensure that the right path is followed.
