of the diagnosis of childhood cancer or other life changing illness.
|School Re-Entry: |
When a child is ready to return to school, an informational presentation is offered to his/her class, K-Jr. High. Questions and concerns are addressed with students and administration on behalf of the parent and their child, or sibling. Ongoing medical, academic, and informational support is monitored and maintained with school as well.

Families with the same or similar diagnosis in their children are introduced to one another. This provides an opportunity to exchange valuable information about their child's illness and treatment effects, while developing lasting friendships.
Legal Assistance, dental and noncancer medical referrals are made for our families to area professionals that have been generous enough to offer their services on a free or sliding fee scale basis.
Our staff will bring services directly into the home, school, hospital, or office, wherever they are needed.
We have an in-house resource library with computer internet access allowing for easy information on pediatric cancer, study, treatments, services and support groups.
