The top local stories this evening from the KERA Newsroom:

Kids who beat cancer don’t escape unscathed. They’re at higher risk for secondary cancers later in life and the treatments they receive as kids can affect growth, fertility, even learning. Then there’s the lingering fear of remission.

And as arts festivals and special events kick off in Dallas this month, the city is up for some major funding to keep arts innovation humming along.

You can listen to the top local news stories weekdays at 6:20 p.m. and 8:20 a.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
