Patient and Family Support Services

Pediatric Brain and Spinal Cord Tumor Program
The Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center cares about the whole child and family. This means helping a child physically, emotionally and spiritually. Since a child’s life is centered on his/her family, a crucial element of recovery is supporting the family as a whole.

The Children's Brain and Spinal Cord Tumor Program offers:

  • Psychological testing and therapy services for patients and families to maximize recovery and regain normal functioning
  • School re-entry program, an increasingly important program as more children survive brain tumors than ever before
  • Educational events, such as the “Tools for Living Symposium,” a conference for parents and family members of children with brain and spinal cord tumors
  • Partnerships with influential brain tumor organizations and community support programs, including the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children, Deliver the Dream, CURE Childhood Cancer and Camp Sunshine
  • Comprehensive Brain Tumor Continuity Clinics 
  • Childhood Cancer Survivorship Program
