Cancer & Blood Disorders Auxiliary of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation

For children facing cancer and blood disorders, only the highest level of compassionate care and the greatest access to comprehensive treatment options will do. The Cancer and Blood Disorders Auxiliary of Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation was formed to establish a network of volunteers who are committed to helping physicians and staff of the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC transform the lives of patients and families facing these life-threatening conditions. This dynamic group of volunteers is dedicated to increasing awareness and raising vital funds to enhance the quality of care provided to our patients. Meet the Auxiliary members here!
