Pediatric Oncology

Childhood cancers can develop early in a child’s life, even before birth. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 10,500 children in the United States under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer in 2021. The treatment for cancers in children is different than for adults. Children are better able to handle chemotherapy than adults, but may be more affected by radiation therapy. These treatments for this medical condition require ongoing care and may cause long-term side effects.

Dealing with childhood cancers can be traumatic for families. The Jewish Health Organization (JHO) believes that trauma and suffering can be overcome with kindness and empathy. Compassionate pediatric oncology services are available through the Jewish Health Organization for families in need. From diagnosis to recovery, the JHO is with you every step of the way.
