At the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, we take tremendous pride in maintaining a high standard of excellence in the treatment of pediatric malignancies and blood disorders. Our division is an active member of Florida Pediatric Community Clinical Oncology Program (CCOP), which enables pediatric oncology patients to have access to some of the latest advances in treatment and cancer control protocols through clinical trials of the Children's Oncology Group (COG). COG is the world's largest childhood cancer research organization. Its primary mission is to cure and prevent childhood cancer through scientific discovery and compassionate care.
Our division was founded in 1990 and has since grown to five fellowship-trained and board-certified staff physicians. Our world-class team is committed to providing medical care excellence for children from South Florida, the entire southeastern United States and neighboring countries.
Care for the Entire Family
We are proud to complement our medical expertise with a family-centered care philosophy. We recognize family members are a great emotional support to the patient. That is why help provide them with the information they need to have a greater understanding of their child's condition – and how they can help. We also introduce family members to local and national support resources to help with coping skills, financial assistance, and maintaining quality of life.
Organizations that we partner with include:
- American Cancer Society
- Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
- Deliver the Dream
- Boggy Creek Camp
- National Hemophilia Foundation
- Gilda's Club
