Treating Kids With Cancer

While medical advances in cancer treatments have dramatically reduced the mortality rate from childhood cancers, the disease continues to be a leading cause of death among children and teens.

At UVA, we offer the latest treatment options for cancer, providing care that is targeted to the special needs of children and teens. Because children with cancer often develop other medical problems, our pediatric cancer specialists work closely with doctors and surgeons in other specialties to provide comprehensive care for your child. 

Cancers We Treat

  • Liver cancer
  • Lymphoma, including Hodgkin’s disease
  • Osteosarcoma
  • Neuroblastoma
  • Retinoblastoma
  • Rhabdomyosarcoma
  • Wilms Tumor

Finding Tomorrow's Cancer Treatments

UVA participates in the Children’s Oncology Group, a national group of researchers dedicated to finding new and effective treatments for children with cancer. 

These clinical trials can give your child access to medications and treatment options not yet available to the public.

Survivors of Pediatric Cancer

We support the physical and emotional needs for patients who have completed cancer therapy.

Learn how we help kids through their cancer treatments and support them in remission at our Survivorship Clinic.
