Comprehensive Leukemia and Lymphoma Care at Children’s National
We offer every available leukemia and lymphoma treatment. However, the care that is best for your child includes therapies and support tailored to meet his or her unique needs. Whether this is your family’s first clinic visit or your child has suffered a relapse, you can be assured he or she is receiving comprehensive care.
Part of what makes care special at Children’s National is our team approach. Our dedicated pediatric leukemia and lymphoma experts have been working together a long time. This helps us deliver seamless care.
We coordinate care and treatments for complex conditions through our tumor board. Children with aggressive blood cancers, such as acute myelogenous leukemia, or who aren’t benefiting from standard treatments receive advanced care planned by a team of specialists. Through regular tumor board meetings, we discuss your child’s needs and any changes in their condition. Working together, we develop a plan and deliver personalized treatment.
Our tumor board includes:
- Leukemia and lymphoma subspecialists and researchers
- Advanced practice nurses
- Social workers
- Clinical research assistants
If your child is newly diagnosed or is responding well to treatment, we see him or her in our outpatient clinic. During these visits we:
- Perform a physical examination
- Take blood samples and perform other tests as needed
- Talk with you about any new symptoms or treatment side effects your child is experiencing
- Refill medications or recommend changes to his or her treatment
- Answer any questions you may have
