Childhood cancer is something that no family wants to go through for their child, yet it happens all the same for far too many families. The Public Access Data Tables that will be used for this project will show the information collected and analyzed from the participants in the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS). The information found within the tables will be organized by the type pf cancer, gender, age, years since diagnosis, age of diagnosis and what were given. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was chosen due tp the enormous amount of work and dedication put into increasing survival rates for pediatric cancer patients, and the amount of information available on their research, past and present.
