The Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (NCCBD) is all about helping kids beat cancer and thrive. We do this through treatment, research and constant support of children and families.
We enroll more children into cancer trials than nearly any other pediatric institution. And we’re even nationally ranked for pediatric cancer treatment at our Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware location.
We’re not a single place, but a multistate pediatric oncology and hematology program that includes many convenient places for families to get care, including key locations in:
Each location belongs to the Children’s Oncology Group, the most experienced cancer organization in the world. We’re also one of the few designated kids-only National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Programs (NCORP) in the country. This is why we have access to the most promising clinical trials.
And, with our tumor board and patient conferences, we bring experts from multiple specialties together from all of our locations to develop a plan of action for treating your child's cancer.
Finding out your child has cancer or a blood disorder can be overwhelming. Our team has the expertise, patient-centered approach and compassion to see your family through the journey.
“One of the most rewarding parts of my job is to see our patients outside the hospital, to see them at a graduation or at a wedding or a party … That’s what this is all about.”
E. Anders Kolb, MD, Director, Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders
