The Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic at East Tennessee Children's Hospital treats children diagnosed with cancer or blood disorders. Being diagnosed with one of these conditions can be scary for your child. Your family's lifestyle and routine may change, because many of these issues need ongoing care. Your doctor at our Hematology/Oncology Clinic will build a relationship with you, your child and other family members. Our pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic also has a full-time child life specialist to help your child understand and cope with his diagnosis.
Hematology/Oncology Patients and Parents (HOPP) is a support group for patients and their families who are being treated for cancer at Children's Hospital. It is led by a board of directors who are parents with experience in coping with having a child with cancer. Children's Hospital staff members lead the group, too. HOPP hosts frequent events for its members including holiday parties, outdoor trips and movie outings.
