Support Services

The diagnosis of cancer or a life-threatening blood disorder affects the entire family, so Nationwide Children's focuses on caring for the entire family. By focusing on “family-centered care,” the Hematology/Oncology Institute team cares about the family’s needs as well as the child’s. It also means that families play a vital role in their child’s care.

We know that your family may need additional support during this time. Use the links below to access resources to help your family.
