For more than 20 years, The Barbara’s Friends Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Outpatient Center at Golisano Children’s Hospital has treated more than 8,000 children with cancer and blood disorders. These young patients and families face many challenges physically, emotionally and financially. More than half of the children treated for cancer at Golisano Children’s Hospital are uninsured, on Medicaid or have no form of payment. Through Barbara’s Friends and the more than $20 million given by supporters, families are able to focus on helping their kids and no child is denied treatment because of their family’s inability to pay for services.Learn More
