Providing children with a team approach to treating all childhood cancers and blood disorders.
Your child’s well-being is important, that is why we rely on a team approach to blood disorders and cancer care. Our team includes hematologists and oncologists, oncology nurses, surgery, neurosurgery, radiation oncology, interventional radiologists, behavioral health, child life specialists and many other specialists. This team is dedicated to offering expert care to children with cancer and blood disorders close to home.
Your child’s pediatrician will work with your child’s cancer care team to deliver quality care where, when and how you want it by offering:
- Local access to specialists in person or via telemedicine.
- Medical care backed by the cancer nurses and doctors of Marshfield Children’s Hospital and its specialized inpatient oncology wing.
- Seamless care through outpatient treatment options including Treyden’s Cabin at Marshfield Medical Center (medical offices) and Marshfield Clinic Cancer Center-Eau Claire.
Staying brave through cancer treatments
In the summer of 2015, Isaac failed to recover from a simple cold. After a visit to the family doctor he was rushed to Marshfield Children’s Hospital. He was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at just 5 years old.
The next three years brought many visits to Marshfield Children’s Hospital for chemotherapy, lifesaving blood transfusions and infection treatments. Isaac received specialized pediatric cancer care and through his difficult journey, his care team at Marshfield Children’s Hospital did everything they could to keep him and his family focused on healing.
In this video, Issac's parents tell the story of their journey of through Issac's cancer treatments and how Marshfield Children's supported them through this time.
Our cancer care and blood disorders team treats many conditions in both inpatient and outpatient settings including these and many others:
Access to Clinical Trials
We offer the newest cancer treatment approaches by offering clinical trials and investigational new drugs. This is done through our membership in the Children’s Oncology Group at the National Cancer Institute.
Treyden's Cabin was created to honor Treden Kurtzweil after he passed away from lymphocytic leukemia in 2013. This project transformed the Cancer Care outpatient waiting and patient rooms into a wildland scene with forest murals, campfire scenes, hidden animals and movies to make our children and families comfortable and entertained during their medical care.
Marshfield Children’s Hospital Oncology Wing
Children with cancer may need to undergo inpatient hospital treatments. When your child comes to Marshfield Children’s Hospital, a specialized cancer care wing is dedicated to their treatment, including a solarium where they can find a good book to read or game to play. Each room is painted with a special woodland theme to help ease anxiety during the stay.
