Organ tumors form within the tissues of an organ, can be either benign or malignant, and can affect the organ's growth and normal function.

Celebrating New Beginnings: Reaching the Checkered Flag
After a child receives a bone marrow transplant, they will be in the hospital for a while. So, when the day comes to finally go home, it’s a day worth celebrating. At Wolfson Children’s, we celebrate important milestones like this together with our patients. A parade lap around the pediatric oncology floor that includes the patient’s favorite music culminates at a checkered flag that each transplant graduate signs and dates.
