Jennifer Levine from Weill Cornell Medicine, and Maria Luisa Sulis from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, discuss the severity of illness across pediatric patients with hematologic malignancies, multisystem inflammatory syndrome, decision making in whether to modify or delay therapy, and the psychosocial impact of the disease on patients and their families.
