Join the fight against cancer and support pediatric cancer research and emergency services for cancer patients at the Jonathan Jaques Children's Cancer Institute
Jonathan Jaques Children’s Cancer Institute
The Jonathan Jaques Children's Cancer Institute (JJCCI) at Miller Children's & Women's Hospital Long Beach provides quality, compassionate care to children of all ages—infants, children and adolescents—with cancer, sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other serious blood disorders. Miller Children's & Women's Hospital Long Beach provides tertiary level hematology/oncology care, while using age-appropriate preparation, advanced equipment and treatment to more than 800 children each year.
JJCCI has comprehensive psychosocial programs and a multi-disciplinary care team that follows a cancer or blood disorder patient from the time of admission, through their stay in the hospital and throughout their follow-up care in the outpatient setting—including physical therapists, dieticians and even pediatric dentists. JJCCI's strong emphasis on integrating new research efforts into treatment plans allows patients access to leading therapies.
