Maine Children's Cancer Program

Mission

Maine Children’s Cancer Program (MCCP), pediatric oncology program of The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center, is Maine’s premier treatment center for children diagnosed with cancer and blood disorders.

MCCP has three primary areas of focus: to provide children with access to the best cancer treatments available, to participate in clinical research that is improving survival rates and moving closer to a cure, and to support the entire family through their journey with childhood cancer.

With a team that includes five pediatric oncology/hematology physicians, specialized nurses, social workers, research associates, a child life specialist and a therapy dog, MCCP offers a wealth of resources to young patients and their families in a closer-to-home setting. MCCP fills a great need in our state, as there are approximately 50-60 children in Maine who are newly diagnosed with cancer each year, with approximately 200 in active treatment at any time.
