The pediatric oncology team at the Essentia Health-Cancer Center (Duluth) is part of our comprehensive cancer care. We work with your child’s cancer diagnosis to develop a treatment plan for your child’s specific medical, emotional and developmental needs. Our goal is to ensure your child and your family receives the best cancer care, support and healing with the most advanced technology and treatments available in a child-friendly atmosphere.
When your child is diagnosed
When your child is diagnosed with cancer, you have many emotions, questions and fears that our cancer and oncology team can answer and we’ll help you explain the diagnosis to your child and other family members. Your child’s pediatric oncologist works with you to directly manage his or her care and any cancer treatment you decide to pursue while providing guidance for at-home care and how to answer your child’s questions about their diagnosis and treatment.
