Pediatric Cancer Risk Program
The Pediatric Cancer Risk Program (PCRP)
The Pediatric Cancer Risk Program (PCRP) at Dana-Farber/Children’s Hospital Cancer Center (DF/CHCC) provides multidisciplinary, consultative care to patients and their families whose condition or family history suggests an increased risk of cancer.
Our program offers patients access to expert pediatric geneticists, genetic counselors and other specialists at Children’s Hospital Boston, as well as world-renowned pediatric oncologists from DF/CHCC.
The first of its kind in New England, our program accepts referrals, second opinions and consultations for evaluation of:
- children who have cancers with known hereditary links
- children whose genetic defects are associated with cancer development
- children with family histories that place them at a higher risk for cancer development
