|Pediatric Oncology (childhood & adolescent cancer)|
Cancer is a frightening diagnosis at any age. Childhood cancer is especially challenging to all: the patient, parents, siblings and loved ones.
Unfortunately, a cure for childhood cancer has proven elusive. But great progress in treating and curing children with cancer continues. In the 21st century most children diagnosed with cancer will be cured of their disease. Success in childhood cancer treatment depends upon the efforts of a large team of specialists including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, and psychosocial support specialists combined with the latest in pediatric specific facilities and resources. The Centers for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases at Children's of Alabama boasts all this and more.
