Kyla's Story

For many parents, watching a child head happily off to school and to play is simply part of the daily routine. For Kyla’s parents, such activities bring a special joy. Six years ago, Kyla’s routine included riding a big red wagon through the halls at Janet Weis Children’s Hospital in Danville. Her destination: cancer therapy. Click for full story with video.

Specialists in caring for children with blood disorders and cancers

Two types of specialists lead our fight against cancer in children. Our pediatric hematologists are physicians who specialize in treating children who have blood disorders. Those who treat children who have cancer are pediatric oncologists. We consider your child’s growth and development through every procedure, from diagnosis through treatment and follow up.

Our innovative treatments and equipment, the latest research, and our dedication provide children with the greatest chances to fight cancers of all types. As part of our efforts, we’re also part of an international group devoted to finding cures. Together, we treat an impressive range of cancers and related disorders.  more more
