At Cook Children's Hematology and Oncology Center in Fort Worth, we are working every day to bring more innovative research, ground-breaking medical treatments and trail-blazing clinical trials to children with cancer and blood disorders - so that one day - our wish to erase kid cancer and blood disorders will come true.
Childhood cancer and certain blood disorders in children can be extremely rare. And even those that are found in adults require a very different approach when it comes to treating kids, teens, and young adults. Choosing a board-certified pediatric specialist for your child's care ensures that your doctor has highly specialized training both in your child's diagnosis and in treating that diagnosis specifically in children.

Before your visit

You may also be contacted by a patient registration representative with benefit information for your service. Depending on your situation, you may want to meet with someone from our social services department for assistance with financial issues and, if you are coming from out of town, information on transportation and accommodations.
