How Can I Join the Fight Against Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders?
Join the Fight Against Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders
“Your child has cancer” are words no parent ever wants to hear. But, when a kid does face cancer or a blood disorder, we’re here to help and couldn’t do it without support from donors like you. Treating more than 500 new cancer patients in 2020 and following nearly 2,000 patients with sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other blood disorders, the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta cares for more kids with cancer than anywhere else in Georgia or in the Southeast.
Our doctors are experienced in treating children with every known form of cancer and blood disorder, from the most common to those rarely seen. In just one visit, our patients have access to specialists, counselors, therapists, and other caregivers and support team members in one location. This makes it easier on sick kids and their families.
Just think, more kids than ever are beating childhood cancer and blood disorders right here in metro Atlanta. Their stories will inspire you; their families deserve our support. Imagine what that means to parents who have tried everything but are holding onto hope for one more option. With your generous support, it means they aren’t in this alone. We want all of our patients—regardless of their diagnosis—to get back to being kids and growing up to live full and happy lives after treatment.
We’re committed to finding innovative treatments for children with cancer and blood disorders.
Home to one of the largest clinical trial programs in the country, we offer our patients access to some of the most novel treatment options.Learn More
