Support Groups

Family support and caregiver support networks are a must for those battling pediatric cancer. Here are some that will help tell your story and keep you connected to your loved ones.

Cancer affects the whole family.

Often, cancer treatments for children are deemed “experimental” and are not covered by insurance. This, coupled with already burdensome medical bills, leads to an enormous amount of financial stress for all members of the family.

Children whose parents and siblings have sacrificed so much to fight cancer often experience guilt for playing on a soccer league or sticking with dance lessons or needing a new pair of shoes. Your monetary support allows them to worry less and enjoy more because now Mom and Dad can do the same.
