Web-Based Physical Activity Intervention in Improving Long Term Health in Children and Adolescents With Cancer

This randomized clinical trial studies how well web-based physical activity intervention works in improving long term health in children and adolescents with newly diagnosed acute lymphoblastic leukemia that shows a decrease in or disappearance of signs and symptoms. Regular physical activity after receiving treatment for cancer may help to maintain a healthy weight and improve energy levels and overall health.

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
