Healthy Families, Healthy Futures
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important for pediatric cancer patients and survivors as well as the healthy public. Studies have linked better response and recovery from treatment as well as decreased risk of cancer for individuals who engage in healthy behaviors such as eating nutritious foods and exercising regularly.
MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital has a variety of programs and resources available to assist families as they incorporate healthy habits into their everyday life.
Practicing healthy living as a family can support your child to grow into a healthy adult with a reduced risk of cancer.
