Pediatric hematology and oncology includes blood-related illness and cancer in children, teens and young adults.
Why You Should Choose The University of Kansas Cancer Center
Our pediatric hematology and oncology team provides effective and compassionate cancer care. As leaders in their fields, our doctors are experts in treating all types of childhood cancers, including the rarest.
Children with cancer often need lifelong follow-up care. We can help your child move from pediatric care to long-term adult and follow-up care. We have services and specialists from many fields, so your child can receive care at one place. It's a unique breadth and depth of care that you'll find only in an academic environment like ours.
Addressing the Needs of Your Child and Your Family
It's hard for children to deal with a chronic, life-threatening or life-limiting illness. It isn’t easy for their families and friends, either. This is why we started KU Kids Healing Place. It's a program that starts at the time of diagnosis. It addresses your family’s long-term educational, social, psychological, spiritual and financial needs.
Through our Connected Kansas Kids talks, children can be the experts as they discuss their disease and treatment. Teachers, classmates, friends, family and neighbors are invited to these talks. We can present them in person or on the phone. Everyone can ask questions and share information with a cancer specialist. These talks take the mystery out of your child's disease, and they teach people about your child’s experience.
