Because cancer affects children differently, Wilmot Cancer Institute works in conjunction with the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Division at Golisano Children's Hospital, which cares for children, adolescents, and young adults with cancer, blood disorders, bone marrow failure, and congenital immune deficiencies.
The team provides expertise in many conditions, as well as a full range of clinical and support services to address both the physical and emotional needs of children and their families. In addition, their research program offers patients the opportunity to participate in ongoing clinical trials and receive cutting-edge diagnostic procedures and treatments.
