The Purple Society does not represent any hospital or medical facility. Across the nation and around the world you will find hospitals that have oncology or cancer programs geared towards childhood cancer. Through research and trials, it is evident that the diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer is different than treating the disease in adults. For this reason, it is imperative when seeking cancer care for your child that you do research and make sure that you are going to the hospital that is right for your child. A hospital that is hyper focused on cancer is ALWAYS your best choice.
