Physical Therapy Helps Pediatric Cancer Patients Return to Health

UW Health's pediatric rehabilitation specialists in Madison, Wisconsin, provide a multidisciplinary approach to your child's rehabilitation. Savannah Figy is a pediatric cancer survivor. The side effects from leukemia treatment had left her feeling tired and unable to do anything. Physical therapy at American Family Children's Hospital is now helping Savannah go from being a survivor to a thriver. Through ongoing therapy exercises, she can now keep up with her friends and has a new-found confidence. And, most important, she can get back to being a kid again.

If your child is a patient of the Pediatric Hematology and Oncology program, we encourage you to speak with your health care team if you feel he or she would benefit from occupational, speech, or physical therapy.
