Most children with rhabdomyosarcoma are successfully treated and go on to live their lives. Your child will need follow-up care to ensure that the treatment is working and to help your child cope with any side effects of the cancer or its treatment. Your family will also have access to our Pediatric Support Center.
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.
