Pediatric Cancer Program
When 5 1/2-year-old Casey began tiring easily and experiencing joint pain, his parents consulted his pediatrician. They received an answer they never expected. "The diagnosis of leukemia took our breath away," said Casey's mom. Casey was immediately admitted to Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital for aggressive cancer treatment. During this time, the family came to appreciate their "home away from home" at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital. "The care Casey received was unmatched," said Casey's father."
