Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology

About the Princess Máxima Center (PMC)

Around 600 children in the Netherlands get cancer every year, and one in four children who are diagnosed with cancer dies from this illness. Ten years ago, a group of parents and healthcare professionals started working towards one national children’s cancer center that could accelerate advances in treatment. Those efforts led to the creation of the Princess Máxima Center for pediatric oncology: a unique center that brings together all the highly complex care and research for children with cancer in the Netherlands.
