Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) recognizes that childhood cancer affects the whole family, not only the child who receives the diagnosis. SuperSibs is dedicated to comforting, encouraging and empowering siblings of children with cancer, so they can face the future with courage and hope. Our Comfort and Care mailing program sends age-appropriate mailings over a two-year period that include coping skills and encouragement for siblings as their brother or sister fights cancer. This program can go a long way towards helping siblings find their footing in a new normal and thrive in the future.
Israel, Najma, Janoah and Ludmila were all amazing siblings to Ethan, who was diagnosed with ependymoma and sadly passed away in 2020. Their favorite activities were when they could all play together, whether it was building Legos or racing each other in Mario Kart.
Eleanor is the social butterfly of her family and an amazing SuperSib! She lives for playdates and park visits. When her older brother Thomas was diagnosed with cancer, she was not even 3 yet and had just welcomed a new baby sister, Madeline, into the world. Unfortunately, Eleanor also had to sacrifice some of her favorite activities.
Ayaan is a shy 4 year old who loves to comfort, play and wrestle with his older brother Kabir. He has plenty of wide-ranging interests too, from Legos to watching movies or pretending to be Batman. He even hopes to be a doctor or basketball player one day.
