Theresa Lazarte is a board-certified family nurse practitioner specializing in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of pediatric cancers. As a registered nurse, she devoted her entire career to caring for patients with pediatric cancers in the inpatient, outpatient, and chemotherapy/biotherapy infusion settings.  Currently as a nurse practitioner, Theresa continues her commitment to caring for patients with pediatric cancers, particulary those with solid tumors and brain tumors.
