Currently, one in every 285 children in the United States develops cancer before the age of 20. Progress in the development of effective new treatments and cures for childhood cancer has been spectacular during the past three decades, but progress is beginning to plateau. Most children now can be cured if they are treated at childhood cancer treatment and research centers by teams of experts in childhood cancer.
As one of the nation’s largest cancer treatment and research centers, Nationwide Children's is leading the fight against childhood cancer, determined to beat it in all its forms. The Cancer Center at Nationwide Children's Hospital provides comprehensive, multidisciplinary diagnosis, treatment and long-term management for pediatric and adolescent patients with any type of cancer.
