Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders

Main Content

When your child has cancer, you’re ready to tackle any obstacle to a cure. At Children’s Cancer Center, we join you in that journey, bringing together a team of pediatric cancer experts with the training and advanced treatments to give your child the best possible outcome. And because the top treatments include hugs and smiles, we’re experts in those, too.

Experienced, research-driven care

The Children's Cancer Center, part of Children’s of Mississippi, provides treatment for any Mississippi child with cancer or sickle cell and other blood-related diseases. You don’t have to have money or insurance, or participate in a clinical trial to receive care. As Mississippi’s only academic medical center and only children’s hospital, our team sees many cancer cases every year and is experienced in treating common, complex, and rare types.

Here, children benefit from care led by doctors and other specialists who are also searching for new cures and better treatments for cancer. The knowledge our doctors gain is used to provide advanced care for your child. Our doctors teach the state’s next generation of caregivers the most up-to-date treatments for childhood cancers. We also offer clinical trials for new therapies and new combinations of existing treatments.

Support that makes a difference

At Children’s Cancer Center, we know treating cancer takes more than just medicine and procedures. That’s why we offer meaningful support for you and your child at every point during diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. Our staff and volunteers work together to provide everything from family support groups, to nutritional counseling, and even lodging at the Ronald McDonald House. At Children’s, you have help wherever you are in the cancer journey.

Comfort, confidence, and convenience

Having a familiar routine and seeing the same friendly faces brings comfort, so we make sure that our patients receive most of their care in one location, our clinic at Batson Children’s Hospital. This also helps parents and families navigate our campus with more confidence.

Pediatric cancers we treat

Children's Cancer Center physicians and specialists detect, diagnose and treat a multitude of cancers in our state’s youngest residents.
