Treatment and Care for Children with Cancer

  • Dana-Farber / Children's Hospital Cancer Center logoWhile no two families whose lives are touched by childhood cancer or blood disease are the same, every parent wants the very best care for his or her child. Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, an integrated pediatric oncology program through Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children's Hospital, provides — in one specialized program — all the services of both a leading cancer center and a pediatric hospital.
