Expert Care for All Types of Cancers

Nemours pediatric oncologists (cancer specialists) provide leading treatment for kids with cancer. 

Part of the Nemours Children's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders (NCCBD), our pediatric oncology team works closely with other specialists throughout our kids-only health system. 

Our care for families is informed by our entire team of pediatric cancer and blood disorder specialists. It’s one of the largest teams of its kind in the nation. Our expert team focuses on achieving the best outcomes, reducing side effects and enhancing quality of life during and after treatment.

Our Delaware location is top rated by U.S. News & World Report. And we’re a designated pediatric National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program  (NCORP) and a sickle cell Center of Excellence institution. This means children with cancer and blood disorders have access to the latest therapies and clinical trials.
