SuperSibs Comfort and Care program is free and provides mailings to children ages 4-18 who live in the United States and have (or had) a sibling with cancer. Participating children receive support mailings from SuperSibs over a two-year period.
Each child and teen receives age-appropriate, evidence-based, personalized materials to reassure them that they’re not alone or overlooked, that the mix of feelings they may be experiencing is OK and that support is available to help them manage through and beyond this period.
Here’s what families can expect from SuperSibs Comfort and Care Program:
- For Parents - Introductory Parent Toolkit and periodic parent e-newsletters which will include resources, helpful tips and coping tools.
- For Siblings - Six mailings per year for two years, containing age-appropriate support resources and fun activities to help manage this turbulent time. Each mailing validates the child’s feelings, provides insight and encouragement to reach out for support, and offers recognition of the child’s uniqueness and importance in the family.
For siblings experiencing bereavement, we offer age-appropriate bereavement support. A child’s grieving journey is different from the grieving process of an adult. Our bereavement packages are designed to gently help brothers and sisters through their grief, providing support to continue life with hope and strength, knowing they are not alone.
