Programs

Pediatric Leukemia/Lymphoma Services

From initial diagnosis through survivorship, children and adolescents with leukemia or lymphoma receive comprehensive, state-of-the-art care. Access to cutting-edge therapeutic protocols and new medications is available to our patients by participation in Children's Oncology Group and Dana Farber Leukemia Consortium treatment studies. Families may also participate in Hasbro Children's Hospital-initiated clinical trials.

CHAMPS

The CHAMPS (Comprehensive Health Assessment and Management for Pediatric Cancer Survivors) Program provides health assessment, education about late effects, counseling, and management of conditions that arise following cancer treatment.  Anyone who was treated for cancer as a child or adolescent, is cancer-free, and who is five or more years past diagnosis can participate in the CHAMPS Program. More about the CHAMPS program.

Fertility Preservation Program

For some children diagnosed with cancer, their ability to have their own children in the future may be threatened. Although our first goal is to cure the child's cancer, we take every opportunity to maximize the chance for fertility preservation. Possible concerns for each child's future fertility are considered when planning individual treatments, and we have several active research studies underway that focus on this important area of survivorship.
