Many of our solid tumor patients are Native Americans. Often these patients’ families wish to perform traditional therapies at the reservation prior to a patient’s surgery at Phoenix Children’s. We take these wishes seriously and work closely with families to coordinate therapies.
Retinoblastoma is the most common form of eye cancer in children. It’s usually detected between the ages of 6 and 24 months. At Phoenix Children’s, the Retinoblastoma Center is dedicated to giving patients an accurate diagnosis and state-of-the-art care. We make it our mission to save lives and preserve vision.
