About Pediatric Blood Disorders and Cancer Care

Your child’s health is your priority and ours. From diagnosis to treatment and recovery, we are with you every step of the way. Our pediatric hematologists and oncologists deliver care for children, teens and young adults with cancer, blood disorders like sickle cell disease or leukemia, bone marrow failure and immunodeficiency disorder. We start by listening to you and your child. By understanding your child’s special needs, our care teams deliver personalized care that’s right for your child.

Our pediatric blood and cancer doctors work together to deliver advanced care for children with blood disorders, common childhood cancers and rare cancers, including:

  • Anemia
  • Bone tumors
  • Brain and spine cancer
  • Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP)
  • Kidney cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Lymphoma
  • Neuroblastoma
  • Neutropenia
  • Sarcomas

Get a second opinion on your child's condition

There’s a lot to think about when your child has a new diagnosis and you’re deciding on a treatment plan. Getting a second opinion can provide you with more information about your child’s condition. It may also increase your confidence in your child’s care plan. Our doctors are part of an integrated, national network of pediatric specialists, sharing best practices and offering advanced care options. Ask if a virtual visit is an option for your child’s second opinion consultation.

A focus on quality of life

Your child doesn’t stop being a kid when they are diagnosed with cancer or a blood disorder. Many of our Ascension sites of care have child life specialists, counselors and social workers to support your family. We help your child understand their condition and prepare for treatments while still making time for play. And, we offer support services for parents, siblings and other family members at many of our sites of care. Our support services may include pediatric therapy, counseling and support groups, financial advising, music, art and dance therapy, and palliative care medicine.

If your child is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, go directly to the ER or call 911.
