Children's Cancer and Blood Disorder Clinic
What is Pediatric Cancer?
The body is made up of trillions of living cells. Normal body cells grow, divide to make new cells, and die in an orderly fashion. During the early years of a person’s life, normal cells divide faster to allow the person to grow. Cancer begins when cells in a part of the body start to grow out of control. There are many kinds of cancer, but they all start because of out-of-control growth of abnormal cells. Click here learn more and about the cancers we treat.
What are Pediatric Blood Disorders?
Hematology, or Blood disorders, encompass a wide variety of conditions. Some of these include problems with red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, bone marrow, the blood’s ability to clot when needed or clots forming when and where they aren’t needed.

What Should I Expect?
At your first visit your child will undergo a detailed history and physical examination. Depending on the circumstances most patients will have blood tests performed.
