Many national organisations have web sites for survivors. Here are some links that we know about. Please let us know of any others.
These are interesting websites for survivors:
the ICCCPO 2003 Survivor's Meeting in Barretstown we decided to set up a
survivors group in Austria. Now
we are about 20 young people all over Austria who are involved in many
different activities for survivors and for newly diagnosed teens. We
created a website (www.survivors.at) in order
to inform on medical or psychological issues, on our meetings and parties
and on our aims. In 2005 we started to visit teens in Viennese hospitals:
support for teens from young people who experienced the same -
chemotherapy, radiation, side effects,...
Once a month we meet each other in a café to talk informally about
many different issues. This is the opportunity for other interested
survivors to get to know us and to join us. Hope to see you soon!!!
