At the MACC Fund Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Wisconsin, our expert team provides comprehensive care for a wide range of pediatric nonmalignant—or noncancerous—conditions. (Learn more about our cancer care and treatment of hematologic malignancies.)
The pediatric nonmalignant blood and marrow conditions we treat include:
- Aplastic anemia
- Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH)
- Immune deficiencies and immune dysregulation disorders
- Marrow failure disorders
- Sickle cell disease
Many of our patients with nonmalignant disorders begin treatment with medical treatment and transfusions while our pediatric hematologists and blood disorder specialists work to determine whether the condition is inherited or acquired. If an inherited, or genetic, cause is discovered, bone marrow transplant is often a viable option for treating these nonmalignant disorders. Other potential treatments for inherited or acquired disorders include cellular therapy and immunosuppressive therapy.
Our care team
Our nonmalignant disorders clinical care team includes the following board-certified pediatric hematologists:
- Amanda Brandow, DO, who specializes in sickle cell disease

- Veronica H. Flood, MD, who leads our benign hematology program
- David Margolis, MD, our Pediatrician-in-Chief
- Julie An Talano, MD, who leads our bone marrow transplant team
