School gives purpose to a student's life. Today, students with cancer and cancer survivors are encouraged to continue their educational experiences to maintain a sense of normalcy. This manuscript discusses the research findings on medical, physical, and cognitive issues that students with cancer and cancer survivors may encounter in their search for normalcy within school. It also presents a discussion of the implications of these findings for educators and provides possible actions to discover and meet the needs of these students. (Contains 5 tables.)
