After your child is treated for neuroblastoma, we will provide follow-up care to check for recurrence and to deal with any side effects of the disease or its treatment. Your child may need rehabilitation, including physical and occupational therapy to regain strength and function and to help with daily living skills

Your child and family will also have access to our Pediatric Support Center, focusing on your child’s social, emotional and psychological well-being and offering support for the whole family, including siblings.

Ringing of the bell

Ringing of the bell

A bright silver bell hangs in the lobby of Miami Cancer Institute. The ringing of the bell signals the end of active treatment. This tradition was started by rear admiral in the U.S. Navy, Irve Le Moyne, who was undergoing radiation for head and neck cancer. He planned to follow a Navy tradition of ringing a bell to signify “when the job was done.” Now nearly all facilities have a similar bell that patients can ring to mark the end of treatment.
