Helping Kids Get Back to Living Their Best Life

With Specialized Pediatric Rehabilitation

Sometimes, healing is a journey that may require a little extra help for kids to get back to feeling stronger and feeling whole. If your child’s treatment or condition requires rehabilitation to support healing, know that our pediatric rehabilitation program is staffed by caring professionals who are specially trained in a wide range of disciplines, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and audiology. The interdisciplinary approach and family-centric style of treatment at AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, focuses on the unique needs of your child and fosters the development of ongoing skills and strategies for successful healing.

We’re here to help you find the right physician or a location that’s convenient for you.

No One Fights Alone

How Britton Overcame Bone Cancer

During the first football practice of his senior season, Britton experienced debilitating hip and back pain. After five different diagnoses from five different physicians, Britton saw Dr. Backus at AdventHealth for Children, who fought back tears as she diagnosed him with a rare bone cancer.

“With such bad news, sometimes you balance reality and percentage remission with faith,” said Dr. Backus, who prayed with Britton and his family after the diagnosis.

After a year-long treatment protocol, and with the endless support of his family, friends and Dr. Backus, Britton is now officially in remission.

“Don’t give up; there is an end to this. Even if you don’t see it, I promise you it’s there,” Britton says, living proof that no one fights alone, and that bone cancer can be overcome.
