SuperSibs! is a national nonprofit organization ensuring that siblings of children with cancer are honored, supported and recognized so they may face the future with strength, courage and hope. At the end of 2013, SuperSibs! temporarily suspended its direct sibling support services due to a lack of funding. Recognizing the incredible importance of providing comfort and care services to siblings of children with cancer, the SuperSibs! staff and board actively sought a partner that would not only restore sibling support services, but also allow the program as a whole to grow and evolve…and they found one! We are proud to announce that Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is working with the Board of Directors of SuperSibs! to acquire their organization, so that their important work can continue.
Why support siblings?
Here at Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, we know firsthand that cancer affects the whole family, including, and oftentimes especially, siblings of children with cancer. These vulnerable siblings face fears and anxiety when their family is thrown into the emotional turmoil of pediatric cancer. The SuperSibs! program is the only program dedicated to ensuring that siblings feel comforted, encouraged, and empowered throughout their family’s battle against childhood cancer. The SuperSibs! program is one more way that we can make a difference in the lives of children with cancer and their families!
