Cancer Center

Cancer is not what parents imagine when envisioning their son's or daughter's childhood. When illness strikes, moms and dads want their child to get well as quickly, safely and permanently as possible so they can put sickness behind them and get back to the life ahead of them. At Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, our pediatric cancer treatment program is built to deliver on these goals. Here, your child will have access to the newest options in childhood cancer treatment, and a team of pediatric oncologists who are known worldwide for their expertise.
