Thank you for the care and compassion that you provide for those affected by cancer.
As you know, when a child is diagnosed with cancer or another life threatening illness, the entire family needs support and healing. Below are some resources to help you provide family centered care to the families and siblings under your care.
Refer Siblings to SuperSibs’ Comfort and Care Program
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. Refer a sibling to SuperSibs!
