GRAND RAPIDS, Mich — The Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Program at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital is one of the only local programs recognized nationally by US News and World Report and it specializes in personalized care for your little ones. 

Because it is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we sat down with Dr. Jim Fahner, division chief for pediatric hematology and oncology, to talk about his amazing team at Helen DeVos, being ranked by US News & World Report, and how treating childhood cancer has changed over the years.
