How Your Support Will Help

By supporting inpatient and outpatient cancer services in The Costas Center, you are helping us make a difference in the lives of children in the following ways:

  • The Costas Center is a member of many of the nation’s most prestigious cancer research groups, enabling our skilled physicians to provide the very latest in treatment protocols and clinical trials.
  • Operational Support. Care coordination, Child Life, mental health and other supportive services all rely on donor support so that we may address the physical, social and spiritual needs of our families.
  • Program Enhancements. To complement current treatment options, we have begun offering CAR T-cell therapy for children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
  • Your support allows us to stay at the forefront of technology in pediatric cancer treatment as we strive for a 100 percent cure rate, including brand new software that automates chemotherapy dosing for the safest care.
