Elias's Story Part Two

"One positive thing I have to say about this process is that the rotation of Children's attending physicians for the oncology inpatient unit is outstanding, and the fellows also are very good. They were accessible (by phone, too, when we were at home), understanding, and of course knowledgeable."

Connor M.'s Story

"Besides the excellent medical care Connor received, I most appreciated the kindness, patience and understanding the Center's staff showed to my son, his mom, and me. There was nothing they wouldn't do for us."

Ryan's Story

"Everything may look pretty overwhelming now, but remember that you are not alone. You are part of a much larger family now - the Children's National family."
