Australian children who live at least five years after being diagnosed with cancer are likely to enjoy long-term survival similar to that of children without the disease, new research released on Thursday by the Cancer Council Australia shows.

Cancer Council Australia is a national nongovernment cancer control organization that aims to facilitate prevention, research, support, and care.

The latest figures found the chance of surviving for a further five years increased from 82 percent at diagnosis to 89 percent one year after diagnosis, rising to 95 percent after three years, and 97 percent after five years.
