Advances in our ability to detect and treat cancer have led to greater survival rates. But we have learned that for some, cancer survival comes with a price and life is never quite the same. The Perini Family Survivors' Center was established to advance clinical care and conduct research on cancer survivorship. The Center provides care and conducts patient-oriented research for adults in Dana-Farber's Adult Survivorship Program and, for children, in the David B. Perini, Jr. Quality of Life Clinic. The Perini Center also disseminates information on the medical, emotional, and psychological challenges facing today's growing population of cancer survivors.
Researchers in the Perini Center are continuously evaluating new and improved ways to help cancer survivors live longer, better lives. This research includes: evaluation of models of survivorship care; the value of MRI in breast cancer screening for Hodgkin's disease survivors treated with chest radiation; and the efficacy of a program for transitioning children off of cancer treatment. Other studies focus on improving long-term outcome and quality of life of cancer survivors, such as: Project REACH, a prospective, clinic-based cohort study of self-reported outcomes by cancer survivors; a multicenter cohort study of 14,000 childhood cancer survivors; and an assessment of the impact of mindfulness-based stress reduction training.
