Services for Cancer Patients

For our cancer patients we offer treatments such as:


  • Chemotherapy- It is a treatment for cancer using one or more drugs that slows the growth of cancer cells. It is possible to lose your hair with this treatment and it could harm healthy cells, but it is one of the more common treatments.
  • Alternative Therapy- It helps you recover from cancer and at times it basically seems like a spa treatment. It could consist of musical therapy, aroma therapy, physical therapy, etc.
  • B.M.T(Bone Marrow Transplant)- It is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Before the transplant, chemotherapy, radiation, or both may be given. Some risks include chest pain, chills, drop in blood pressure, fever, looking flushed in the face, headaches, hives, nausea, pain, or shortness of breath. All in all though, it is a very helpful treatment.
  • Radiation Treatment- It is a treatment delivered by machine to shrink tumors, kill cancer cells, and minimize damage to normal tissue. A mask is put on your face so you stay in the same position. It is delivered by a form of photo beam with one dose per session. Side effects include damages in DNA, hair loss, skin problems, blood count change, fatigue, or could cause other cancers.

Services for the Families

At the Sunrise Faith Children's Hospital we also offer many services for the patient's family such as:


  • No financial cost- Our hospital is so busy we would have to put your family on a waiting list, but once you get accepted in you don't have to pay a penny. At the Sunrise Faith Children's Hospital we donate to your cause which includes no fee. All of our financial support is donation based, so we would be happy to help your child.
  • Housing- We have a separate building next to the hospital for patient's families in need of a home while they are away from their real homes. In the homes we provide luxurious beds, kitchens, and entertainment to try and get your mind off of reality for little while. Again, the homes come at no cost unless you damage something.
  • Counseling/therapies- If you are having a difficult time with the situation at hand while at the hospital, we provide counseling or different types of therapies to try and help you with the situation.

Cure Rate

At the Sunrise Faith Children's Hospital, our cure rate is absolutely outstanding. Over 60-90% of our patients go home cured and the average stay rate is at the most a year and a half.

Most common type of cancer

At the Sunrise Faith Children's Hospital the most common type of cancer is Acute Lymphoblastic leukemia. It is a cancer that occurs in the blood and bone marrow that can be severe and spread quickly if not treated thoroughly. The bone marrow in a healthy child makes blood stem cells that become mature blood cells over time. They can either be myeloid or lymphoid stem cells that mature. In a child with ALL leukemia too many of the stem cells mature into lymphoblasts which are leukemia cells. Then, the lymphoblasts block the room for white blood cells, red blood cells and platlets. Which causes easy bleeding, change in red blood cell count, or infection.
