The Children's Blood & Cancer Center provides outpatient and inpatient chemotherapy and medical care to children and adolescents with leukemia, brain tumors, lymphoma, cancer of the bone and soft tissue, and other rare tumors. The staff also coordinates radiation therapy and home health treatments.
Each year the Children's Blood & Cancer Center team diagnoses approximately 75-80 new cases of childhood cancer. Our program participates in pediatric cancer treatment regimens designed by the Children's Oncology Group (COG), an international research organization sponsored by the National Cancer Institute.
By working with the most advanced clinical trials, each child receives the highest quality of care, right here in Central Texas near family and friends, while keeping their lives as "normal" as possible during treatment. Studies have shown that patients treated with COG protocols have significantly better disease-free survival rates than those who have not received the same treatments.
