The course of care for children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) involves chemotherapy, which causes physical deficits in strength, balance, and sensation, as well as psychosocial effects, including risk of depression. This study highlights the successful use of a six-month fitness and wellness program consisting of physical activity, social interaction, and education, for children with ALL and their best friends, to reduce the physical and psychosocial effects of cancer treatment.
