FAMILY SUPPORT

Where do you turn when you hear those dreaded words, “Your child has cancer,” and it knocks the wind out of you?

More than two-thirds of CAC2 member organizations provide direct support for families.  They also work through CAC2 to smooth the path for families:

  • to guide families to information and support resources collected on the Hope Portal;
  • to educate families about research trends and community issues;
  • to share a selection of books written by our members that offer practical, first-hand experiences with childhood cancer; and
  • to highlight the problem with bullying in the childhood cancer community and highlight ways to take action against bullying

 

The Family Support group will do its best to address your questions, concerns, or comments pertaining to childhood cancer and family matters.

CAC2 members with an interest or focus in family support are encouraged to participate in the work of the CAC2 Family Support Interest Group.   If you have questions and/or would like more information on how to be involved with the numerous CAC2 family support initiatives, contact the Family Support Group at familysupport@CAC2.org

Sharing best practices and coordinating action helps us better support families and survivors of childhood cancer.
