The information on this Website is not designed to substitute for proper
medical advice. Nor is it designed to frighten parents. Rather, we believe
that parents have a right to have access to information about the risks
and benefits of any cancer treatment administered to their child. It has
been our experience that some pediatric oncologists emphasize the benefits
of a treatment and spend less time describing the known and potential
risks. The information on this Website provides examples of some of the
known risks, failures and toxicities of some treatments for some pediatric
cancers. The information on this Website is, therefore, neither a balanced
nor a comprehensive medical presentation of the treatment of any pediatric
cancer and has no role whatsoever in the making of clinical or medical
decisions. Do not rely on the information in this site in lieu of consulting
a medical doctor, because it is not medical advice.
Please also be advised that many states have statutes of limitations that require the filing of a lawsuit before a specific period of time has elapsed.
you may not have a legal right to communicate privileged information about
a child’s cancer, diagnosis, or treatment unless you are that child’s
parent or legal guardian.
