Can my child be accepted to St. Jude if he or she has already had surgery?

Yes. Prior surgery alone does not exclude your child from being considered for treatment at St. Jude. If your child has already undergone a biopsy or surgical resection, we would want to review the "histology" or tumor taken at the time of surgery to confirm the diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is made, we will discuss with you the specific therapy that St. Jude would recommend.
