Our areas of cancer treatment focus

Oncology (0 -9 years)

The treatment of young children with cancer can be overwhelming for patients, parents, siblings and caretakers. Even the treatment team involved in providing care for little patients can find the process taxing. Crayon provides specialist paediatric radiation oncology services at our unit. All in a non-threatening and friendly environment.

Oncology (10 -19 years)

Teenagers living with cancer require tailored support that addresses their specific medical, emotional, social, and developmental needs. Crayon provides both medical and radiation oncology services at our unit. All in a safe, welcoming and accessible environment.

Young Adult
Oncology (20 - 39 years)

Young adults between the ages 20 and 39 years have very different needs to older patients. At Crayon we provide both medical and radiation oncology services, all in an age-appropriate environment which caters for medical, emotional and social needs.

A multi-disciplinary team of doctors.
