Cancer Predisposition Program

It's estimated that 30% of childhood cancers are caused by genetic factors. The cancer predisposition program seeks to better understand what causes childhood cancer and how to treat it. Children with pre-existing conditions that can lead to cancer, or with a family history of cancer, are followed in the program, to optimize early detection and treatment of cancer.
