Why should my child come to St. Jude at the beginning of his or her therapy?

Once therapy is started, regardless of where it is started, it is important that it be carried out to completion. If therapy is started and stopped randomly, it is impossible to know how or if tumor responded to any one type of treatment. Therefore, make sure you feel comfortable with the treatment that is recommended and that you have had all of your questions answered to your satisfaction before therapy begins.
