I started volunteering with Childerns Cancer Community in 2009. It's a great organization, full of dedicated and amazing people, who really help out the childern and their families during a difficult time. They provide support,hope and help when they need it most.
What a blessing this group is to families who are experiencing childhood cancer. The kids AND the parents have somewhere to turn, where they can be with people who "get it." It is very very scary to be a child with cancer. It is very very scary to be a parent with a child who has cancer. Childrens Cancer Community helps them cope. I appreciate that Childrens Cancer Community has volunteer opportunities for non healthcare professionals like me. I enjoy helping at their events.
I have been involved with Children's Cancer Community for a little over a year. The hope and courage this group provides to all of the family members is truly heart warming!
