The Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children's Healthcare of Atlanta is one of the largest pediatric cancer and blood disorders programs in the country. We care for children and young adults with a wide range of cancer and blood disorders—from the most common to those rarely seen outside of the top centers.
To protect our patients, their families and our staff, we are limiting each visitor to two parents or caregivers at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders clinics.
