At City of Hope, our team of pediatric experts provides comprehensive care for children with leukemia and lymphoma. Leukemia is a cancer of the blood and the most common cancer in children, accounting for approximately 40 percent of all cancer diagnoses in children.

Our program treats patients with a range of leukemias and lymphomas, including:


  • Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)
  • Acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
  • Chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML)


  • Hodgkin lymphoma
  • Non-Hodgkin lymphoma
