Pediatric Cancer Center
Where groundbreaking cancer research meets world-class compassionate care
The Cancer & Blood Disorders Center at Nicklaus Children's Hospital provides state-of-the-art medical and surgical care to more pediatric cancer patients than any other facility in South Florida.
We are recognized for a multidisciplinary, holistic approach to care that places the child and family at the center of a highly coordinated network of pediatric oncology specialists who work together to anticipate and meet the needs of the child and family throughout their treatment and follow-up care. When children enter the Cancer Center, they benefit from knowing that an entire team of pediatric specialists is putting their needs and the needs of their family first.
Research is the backbone of the Cancer & Blood Disorders program at Nicklaus Children’s, making us the region’s leading center for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and blood disorders in children. We offer a large array of clinical trials and pediatric subspecialists in Florida, and have access to the very latest national and international research data, treatment protocols and drug therapies. We are engaged in more than 100 clinical studies in the fight against pediatric cancer and have been recognized as a full member of the prestigious Children’s Oncology Group (COG), a nationally funded consortium of pioneering physicians and institutions.

At only 2 years old, Lacy needed to have a tumor removed from her brain; she also went through six months of chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant. Today, Lacy is cancer free and going to different therapies to continue getting stronger every day.
