September 24, 2020

In this week’s episode of the CURE® Talks Cancer podcast, we chat with Dr. Tanja Gruber, the chief of pediatric hematology, oncology and stem cell transplantation at Stanford Children’s Health, about how pediatric cancer treatment is evolving thanks to advances in treatments like immunotherapy, and what parents should do after their child receives a diagnosis.

September was named Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to draw attention to the leading cause of death by disease for children under the age of 14.

In this week’s episode of the CURE® Talks Cancer podcast, we chat with Dr. Tanja Gruber, the new chief of pediatric hematology, oncology and stem cell transplantation at Stanford Children’s Health, about how the field of pediatric cancer has evolved over the last decade and where the landscape is headed in the future, thanks to advances in treatments like immunotherapy.

Gruber also discusses the idea that late effects of treatment need to be taken into consideration when creating a therapeutic plan, and offers some advice to newly diagnosed patients and their families.
