Comfort & Care Mailing Programs

SuperSibs Comfort & Care MailerThe SuperSibs Comfort & Care Mailing Programs send age-appropriate support over two years to children ages 4-18 residing in the U.S. who have experienced the childhood cancer diagnosis of a sibling.

The program includes:

  • Resources and support specifically for parents
  • Six mailings per year for two years containing age-appropriate support resources and fun activities
  • Annual birthday surprise
  • Graduation recognition at the end of the program
  • Option to re-enroll in the program

Grief and Loss Mailings

This program includes:

  • Grief support and resources specifically for parents
  • 4 mailings per year for two years with activities designed to provide gentle ways for SuperSibs to cope with their grief and feelings
  • A special remembrance on the anniversary of their sibling’s passing
  • Option to re-enroll in the program

All activities are adaptable to the SuperSib’s age, skill, and comfort level. Younger children will benefit from gentle guidance and assistance in completing some activities.
