Our Care Team

At Children’s Minnesota, we believe your care is a partnership between you, your family and a wide variety of experts in cancer treatment, including physicians, nursing, psychology, social work and more. You’ll have support from dozens of specialists at Children's as well as experts in young adult and adult medicine from Allina Health’s Abbott Northwestern Hospital.

Care and Clinical Trials

No matter how you look at it, having cancer is scary. Knowing what to expect will help you feel a little more prepared. Below is brief overview of how things work. Your Children’s Minnesota care team will be there to provide more information, guidance and answers to questions along the way.

Reasons to Choose Children’s

At Children’s Minnesota, we know that medical treatments—like surgery, chemotherapy and radiation—are only part of caring for an adolescent or young adult (AYA) with cancer. You’ll also need emotional support, interactions with other people your age and logistical help living your life while undergoing cancer treatments. We’ll help you find the combination of support—and independence—that’s right for you.
