Childhood Cancer

Cancer in children is much different from cancer in adults. It should give you hope to know that more than 80 percent of all children with cancer are cured and go on to lead normal lives. More Information


Because a diagnosis of cancer affects the whole family, a social worker is assigned to every family. They are available to discuss your emotional concerns and can help you to locate needed resources. Learn More


Chemotherapy is the use of medicines to damage or kill rapidly growing cells. The type of chemotherapy your child will receive depends on the type of cancer they have. Learn about medications

The diagnosis of a life-threatening disease or disorder in a child, like cancer, is traumatic and has profound consequences for the child, their family and the family's support system. Cancer causes upheaval in everyone's life. Children with cancer often have to undergo invasive and painful procedures at a time when they are sick, hurting, and have feelings of uncertainty and fear of the unknown. Family members are called upon to be supportive to the child while searching to understand what this diagnosis means, what can be done to treat the cancer, and what will happen to their loved one.

Questions such as "Will my child be in pain?" "How sick will this make my child?" and "Will my child survive?" are common. This website has been put together to serve as an ongoing resource guide for you and your family as you deal with the diagnosis and treatment of your child's cancer.  This website provides basic information in a number of areas. We invite you to explore this site and hopefully it will help answer some of the questions you have.
