The Cancer and Blood Disease Program at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital is an international leader in its field. Because childhood cancer differs from adult cancer in the way it emerges and develops, our programs are designed specifically for children. With this expertise, many childhood cancers are cured and the outlook for many young patients is good.
