About Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
At Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center we treat more children and young adults with cancer daily than any other institution in the world. Our Pediatric Disease Management Team includes more than 30 full-time physicians and surgeons, each of whom has expertise in one or more areas of pediatric oncology.
The Center's physicians and scientists have pioneered many pacesetting therapeutic regimens that have made possible the remarkable progress in treating many infants, children, teenagers, and young adults with cancer. Today, more than 70 percent of children diagnosed with cancer are cured. Childhood leukemia, for example -- a disease from which almost all children died in the 1960s, and from which half died in the 1980s -- can now be cured in more than 80 percent of children.
