The Children's Cancer Center at Blank Children's provides a complete range of services for children with cancer and their families. Blank Children's is affiliated with the Children's Oncology Group, which enables cancer centers from across the country to share valuable information about the latest treatment protocols available. This means children receive the same, sophisticated care here in central Iowa that they receive at other leading national children's cancer centers.
By working together, the staffs of the John Stoddard Cancer Center and Blank Children's strive to provide a complete range of services to children with cancer - right here on the same campus.
