My daughter is a cancer survivor. She was treated with radiation at 5 years of age in 1987 and has lived with the consequences ever since. She is now turning 32 this month and continues to struggle with long term effects of radiation. She is not a happy or healthy young woman. She lives on disability, has had over 20 brain surgeries, gastric bypass, and too many other health problems to mention here. All caused by long term effects of radiation.
