Help & Hints

If you are a family with a child with cancer, know that we know some of what you are going through as we are cancer families too.  Some of us have survivors, some of us have angels, but all of us know about childhood cancer firsthand.

While we are strictly a research foundation started by an onco kid, we do what we can to help families in non-monetary ways.  We know this battle, and we Never Ever Give Up fighting to find the cures.  Below are some helpful links for you as you navigate your journey, and further down is a blog we have started for onco families to share their questions and tips with other families! NEGU!
