Cancer and Blood Disorders Center

Meet Your Team

Seattle Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center team is specially trained and highly experienced in treating babies, children, teens and young adults (up to age 30 for some cancers).

Our caring professionals specialize in blood disorders and cancer (hematology-oncology) and in meeting the unique needs of children. Your healthcare team includes experts from many specialties to care for your whole child, not just their disease. We support our patients and their families through all aspects of their journey – from keeping up with school during treatment to getting follow-up care as they become adults.

Caring for Patients With Cancer

To have the best result, young people with cancer get care at a hospital – like Seattle Children’s – that is part of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG). Besides doctors, your child will get care from advanced practice providers (APPs). These are advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs) and physician assistants (PAs) with special training and education to diagnose and treat patients.

Caring for Patients With Blood Disorders

Our doctors are nationally known for treating children who have blood disorders. The doctor who will guide your child’s care is board certified in hematology-oncology. Our advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs) are registered nurses with advanced training and education to diagnose, treat and teach patients with blood disorders.
