Selecting where a child will receive cancer treatment is one of the biggest decisions a caregiver can make. The Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children’s specializes in providing patients—from infants through young adults—with the latest pediatric cancer treatments by nationally recognized medical specialists. We are dedicated to not only treating cancer, but also the needs of the whole child—emotional, spiritual, and physical. Children simply shouldn’t have to give up being kids while dealing with the grown-up issue of cancer.
On May 10, 2011 Hyundai Motor America and its nonprofit organization Hyundai Hope On Wheels, announced a $10 million grant to CHOC Children’s Hospital in Orange County, California. The grant was the largest corporate grant in the hospital’s history. The grant is being used to fund groundbreaking pediatric cancer research that uses the latest advances in genomic medicine to provide more effective, individualized treatment for children with cancer. CHOC Children’s has named its cancer center of excellence the Hyundai Cancer Institute. The Hyundai Cancer Institute at CHOC Children’s is the only Children’s Oncology Group (COG) with a Phase 1 clinical trial designation in the Southwestern United States.
