On average 80 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year at CHEO.
Each cancer patient gets a bell ceremony. Families, friends and CHEO staff gather to cheer on their patient as they ring the special bell to mark the end of their treatment. It is both an emotional and celebratory moment that highlights their courage.
Each patient receives a treatment plan unique to them.
Less invasive treatment = increased quality of life. Senior scientists at CHEO are producing oncolytic viruses capable of attacking cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells intact. This very promising therapy just began the clinical trials phase in adults.
Remission is achieved when all the cancer cells have been removed or destroyed and there is no evidence of cancer cells in the body.
