The Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta cares about the whole child and family. This means helping a child physically, emotionally and spiritually, if needed. Since a child’s life is centered on his/her family, a crucial element of recovery is supporting the family as a whole.
