The growing burden of childhood cancer calls for timely, accurate, and coordinated interventions for the well-being and recovery of children. In our Children's Hospital we treat: Leukemia, Tumors, Retinoblastoma, Sarcomas, Lymphomas and neoplasms. Each case that undergoes timely treatment and interventions represents longer survival, longer life expectancy, and decreased social impact on children, their parents, and their families. Help us improve the quality of care!
