Anne Grifo, RN, MSN, CRNP Anne Grifo, is an advanced practice nurse in the Cancer Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Locations: Specialty Care & Surgery Center, King of Prussia Appointments and Referrals: 1-800-TRY-CHOP (1-800-879-2467) Background As a nurse practitioner, I coordinate and provide clinical care to patients with oncological disorders. I practice on the inpatient unit and work primarily with children and their families receiving routine chemotherapy. Teaching newly diagnosed families about their child’s disease is also an important part of my role. I enjoy knowing that I have an impact in a child’s treatment and have the ability to make a very difficult time in a family’s life a bit easier. Most of my time is spent caring for children with leukemia and lymphoma. I continue to grow professionally as new advancements are continually being made in the area of hematological malignancies.
