Promoting healthy development in kids during and after cancer treatment

Going through cancer treatment is difficult at any age. But because kids' bodies are rapidly growing and developing, they are more susceptible to long-term side effects that can hinder physical, cognitive and emotional development.


Children's C.H. Robinson Infusion Center is the first pediatric cancer and blood disorders infusion center of its kind in Minnesota. Located at Children's – Minneapolis, the center provides more than 5,000 infusion visits per year. Using the center to receive chemotherapy, blood products or other infusions can eliminate the need for an inpatient stay, reduce insurance and hospital costs, and improves quality of life by allowing children to return to home or school more quickly. We are nationally recognized for our efforts to reduce the severity of side effects related to treatment.
