Your Child's Care Begins Here

When your child is facing a diagnosis of leukemia, you can trust the pediatric oncology team at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. Our children's oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, social workers and other family-centered health care professionals focus their efforts on providing the most effective treatment possible.

Chemotherapy is the main treatment for childhood leukemia. Other treatments include radiation therapy and highly targeted immune and biologic therapies. A stem cell (blood or bone marrow) transplant may also be needed. If so, our blood and bone marrow transplant program is accredited by the Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy (FACT), which means that we meet or exceed rigorous national quality standards for patient care and cell therapy treatments.
