The prospect of a child having cancer is devastating for South Carolina families. However, the Pediatric Cancer program at the Hollings Cancer Center in Charleston, SC offers hope for effective treatment for childhood cancer, a return to a normal life, and possibly a cure.
The MUSC Hollings Cancer Center is the primary referral center for advanced cancer care for all of South Carolina, leading the way in prevention, education, advanced treatment and research. As the state's only National Cancer Institute designated cancer center, we offer patients expanded access to the latest clinical trials and most promising new therapies.
The 2016–17 edition of U.S. News & World Report's America's Best Children's Hospitals has ranked MUSC Children's Hospital as a "best hospital" for pediatric cancer, ranking us among the top programs in the country.
Bobbi Connor of South Carolina Public Radio interviews Michelle Hudspeth about new, improved treatments for childhood cancer. Listen to the Health Focus Podcast.
