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 guidelines via its telephone information center (1-800-4-CANCER) and its website (www.cancer.gov). Detailed guidelines intended for use by cancer care professionals are also available on www.cancer.gov.
The COG is the world’s largest organization devoted to childhood cancer research. The COG website, www.childrensoncologygroup.org, provides key information to help support children and their families from the time of diagnosis, through treatment, and beyond.
