Here at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, we treat close to 400 new oncology patients per year with a form of childhood cancer. Our Hematology/Oncology/BMT physicians and researchers are currently involved in over 274 different studies and enrolling patients in 52 open studies to find out more about the biology of childhood cancer, but we will not stop until every child is cancer free. Visit this section throughout the month of September and help us increase awareness of childhood cancer throughout our entire community.
