Still image from Lion In The House Series:  Childhood Cancer & School Issues

School still matters to a child or adolescent facing cancer. With childhood cancer survival rates now nearing 80%, most young cancer patients find themselves going back to school. Answers these questions: 1) Will they be accepted and understood by their peers? 2) Will they be months behind? 3) Will the effects of their treatment interfere with their learning abilities? Also, discusses real-life case studies of five kids of differing age, race, and genders who have walked this road. Meets four childhood cancer patients and survivors, and one sibling of a patient, and follows their struggles, in some cases years beyond their actual cancer treatment. Note: Contains profanity.
