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

This randomized clinical phase III trial studies how well web-based physical activity intervention works in improving long term health in children and adolescents with cancer. Regular physical activity after receiving treatment for cancer may help to maintain a healthy weight and improve energy levels and overall health.
