What makes a community? Is it family? Is it home? Or is it people? Learn how caregivers, staff, patients and parents helped make Boston a second home for Alicia and Violet during their 6-week life-changing journey.
Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, an integrated pediatric hematology and oncology program through Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Boston Children's Hospital, provides—in one specialized program—all the services of both a leading cancer and blood disease center and a leading pediatric hospital.
Our pediatric clinical and nursing specialists and all of our staff are passionate about meeting the unique needs of young patients, their parents, siblings and other family members. Our scientists work tirelessly to understand the causes of cancer and blood diseases and to develop better treatments. Equally important, we ensure that patients, families and community physicians are part of our comprehensive care team.
And while we're known for our science-driven approach, our doctors never forget that your child is a child—not just a patient. We specialize in innovative, family-centered care. From the moment of diagnosis through long-term follow-up, you'll work with a team of compassionate professionals who are committed to your child's health and your family's well-being.
