Mission:
SuperSibs! was founded in October of 2002, to fill a glaring gap in services to families of children with cancer. Because the young brothers and sisters of children with cancer too often feel lonely, frightened, forgotten, angry, jealous, guilty, confused and even grief before, during and after their brother or sister's diagnosis, many of them are left with life-changing emotional scars. Until SuperSibs!, there was no organization with its primary goal to comprehensively address this problem, which can lastingly affect siblings of 12,000 children who become dangerously ill with cancer each year in the U.S. alone. SuperSibs! is unique 501(c)(3) organization designed to fill this specific gap. We bring joy, comfort and support to these "forgotten" children, attacked as they are by emotional turmoil and feelings of displacement and unimportance. SuperSibs! complements existing services provided to the sick child and his or her family. SuperSibs! answers the heartbreaking question "Hey! What about me?". SuperSibs! is being lauded by parents, siblings and professionals across the U.S. and Canada. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, EVERYONE in the family needs healing, even the "invisible children" - the siblings. SuperSibs! is here to help.

When our oldest boys were 7 and 5, we welcomed our third son, Hansen, into our family. Just as we seemed to be finding our groove as a family of 5, Hansen was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, cancer of the retina. He was only 11 months old at the time. Our world went into a tailspin. In addition ... more »
