More information on treating childhood leukemia
For more details on treatment options – including some that may not be addressed in this document – the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Children’s Oncology Group (COG) are good sources of information.
The NCI provides treatment information by phone (1-800-4-CANCER) and on its website (www.cancer.gov).
The COG is the world’s largest organization devoted to childhood cancer research. The COG website, www.childrensoncologygroup.org, offers information to help support children and their families from diagnosis, through treatment, and beyond.
