Beaumont Children's Hospital's pediatric oncology and hematology specialists diagnose and treat blood disorders and cancers in children using a multidisciplinary approach that includes medical, surgical and radiation oncology.
Beaumont's Pediatric Hematology and Oncology department is an active member of the Children's Oncology Group (COG). A prestigious international organization, COG is the largest cooperative pediatric cancer group in the world, and provides care to 90 percent of children with cancer in the United States. Pediatric cancer patients at Beaumont Children's Hospital receive aggressive, state-of-the-art treatment based on nationally approved research protocols.
Many programs have been established to help Beaumont Children's Hospital's pediatric oncology patients long after they complete their treatment. In early 2008 we opened the Late Effects Clinic to study the delayed effects of being a pediatric cancer patient and to assist patients with medical issues related to educational access, insurance and employability.
Patients treated at Beaumont Children's Hospital are also eligible to receive college scholarship grants from the Pediatric Cancer Survivor Scholarship Program. Since its inception in 1990, the scholarship program has donated more than $500,000 to more than 100 students to help them move forward in their lives.
At the Pediatric Long-Term Follow-Up Clinic, our rehabilitation professionals work together with a multidisciplinary team including a pediatric oncologist, pediatric oncology nurse navigator, pediatric social worker, child psychologist and dietitian.
