At Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders program, we provide consultation services for children and their doctors not previously seen in our program who would like input from our expert team. If you or your child's doctor would like us to review your child's case, we ask for health records and test results for your child. The child does not need to live in the area or be seen in our clinic.
