The Children's Blood Foundation (CBF) was founded in 1952 as a philanthropic organization to support the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology. The Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center is the sole beneficiary of CBF's committed efforts. Major emphasis is on blood diseases affecting children: leukemia, thalassemia, hemophilia, sickle cell anemia, platelet disorders, retinoblastoma, and AIDS. CBF trains physicians and hematology nurse clinicians in the treatment of blood diseases. Other CBF activities include a hemophilia home care program, group discussions for parents and patients, genetic counseling and screening, and public education.
