The Ped-Onc Resource Center, is a web site for parents, friends, and families of children who have or had childhood cancer.

This resource center was created by and for people who know young people who are recovering from cancer.

Most of the contributors to this site are members of ACOR(The Association of Cancer Online Resources, Inc.),pediatric cancer mailing lists, ped-onc, ped-onc-survivors, and ALL-kids.

Cancers in children tend to fall into specific types. In general, childhood cancers are more aggressive than adult cancers and derive from more primitive cell types.

There is a wealth of information on each childhood cancer. The common cancers are discussed separately on nine pediatric oncology web pages linked to in the navigation links to the right.

Each includes: disease descriptions, treatments and links to pertinent information. Some of the rarer cancers are not listed, but the site does include links to obtain further information. Please check the “other” pages of the cancer kid home pages for these cancers, since some of the parents keep links and information on their sites.
