The number of individuals who have successfully completed treatment for a cancer diagnosed during childhood and are entering adulthood has been increasing. Members of the International Berlin-Frankfurt-Munster Early and Late Toxicity Educational Committee (ELTEC) invited 45 paediatric cancer experts - representing oncologists, psychologists, nurses, epidemiologists, parents, and survivors - from 13 European countries, with five additional experts from North America, to Erice, Sicily, on October 27-29, 2006, to discuss the circumstances in which the word "cure" should be used when speaking about children with cancer, and when and why continuing follow-up and care may be required. The objective of the gathering was to generate from the participants' personal and professional experiences an overview statement of the group's philosophy of cure and care of survivors of childhood cancer. The 10 points reflect what the group considers essential for the survivors' cure and care.
