An experienced team of experts will work with you and your family to identify the best therapy for your child’s solid tumor.
We’re in awe of what St. Jude has done for us. I want to say, ‘Really? You’re doing all this for our child and our family?’ But they do it not just for her, but for all of these kids.
Adrenocortical Tumors and International Pediatric Adrenocortical Tumor Registry (IPACTR)
The International Pediatric Adrenocortical Tumor Registry (IPACTR) contains data about children and teens who have adrenocortical tumor or ACT.
ACT is a rare type of cancer. It affects a very small number of children each year. That small number makes getting data difficult. Scientists at St. Jude started collecting details about children around the world who have had ACT.
The result is IPACTR. Experts use the IPACTR data to help understand ACT and help design research studies that aim to find new and better treatments.
Without the lifesaving treatment at St. Jude, I would not have been able to watch her grow into the graceful woman she has become.
Solid tumor team
The Solid Tumor Treatment Team at St. Jude includes health care professionals with specialized training in a variety of disciplines related to the care of children and adolescents with solid tumors. These specialists will be closely involved in your child's care.
Miguel’s recent tests came back completely normal. We’ve been able to deal with all the complications of therapy, and now Miguel has a functional limb, no pain and a normal heart. Things are looking rosy for him.
