Cancer & Blood Disorders Institute

Recognized as a Top 50 Children's Cancer Program by U.S. News & World Report 2019-2020

The Cancer & Blood Disorders Institute at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital treats common and rare pediatric cancers and blood disorders and offers patients a wide range of therapies, including cutting-edge immunotherapy such as our CAR-T cell therapy program, and access to some of the latest clinical trials.

A Whole-Team Approach

Our oncology and hematology programs take a whole-team approach to treating cancer and blood disorders. We work alongside specialists and subspecialists across our hospital, including social workers, Child Life specialists, a psychologist, oncology nurses, pharmacists, patient educators and nutritionists and are ready to meet a patient's needs all in one location.

We understand the complex physical and emotional needs of children with cancer and blood disorders. When you partner with us, your family is surrounded by experts to help you navigate your child’s care.

Partnering to Find a Cure for Childhood Cancer

We participate in clinical trials and are committed to scientific research. Our affiliation with The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore connects us to even more clinical trials and emerging cures for childhood cancer. We are also members of the Children’s Oncology Group, the world’s most experienced organization in the clinical development of new therapies and treatments for children with cancer.

Two-year-old Avalynn was an active toddler until one day, a small fall eventually unveiled a larger health issue. Her parents share their story of finding a diagnosis that led them to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital for treatment. With the help of a care team, who became an extension of their family, Avalynn is now an active, energetic preschooler.
