At Children’s, we recognize that a cancer or blood disorder diagnosis can impact more than just a child’s physical health. For instance, staying caught up in school can be a challenge — especially for children who have to stay home because their immune systems are weakened during cancer treatment. And while children tend to be very resilient in the face of serious diagnoses, taking care of their emotional health is just as important as taking care of their physical health.

In addition to the treatment team, our social workers and child life specialists are here to support our patients and their families in addressing everything from questions about insurance to how to explain a diagnosis to siblings. And our Pastoral & Spiritual Care staff are also available 24/7 to patients and families of all faiths.

Children’s Hematology/Oncology Program is led by the state’s only pediatric hematologists/ oncologists, who are nationally known experts in childhood cancer. They have decades of clinical experience and are involved in national and international research that has led to some of the cancer treatments used around the world.
