We were connected with Karen with Art From the Heart through a social worker from our daughter's oncologist's office. Though her a makeover was done on the room she shares with her sister, the results of which are amazing! We were so impressed with the kindness shown to our entire family. This is a wonderful organization.

The Great!

keep doing what they're doing.

When we received a call from Karen from Art from the Heart, we had no words that could thank her organization enough. Through the Maria Ferrari Childrens hospital, where my daughter Rosie was diagnosed and treated for Hodgkins Lymphoma, she was contacted by AFTH and had a room makeover that she is thrilled with. Our family is forever grateful for this wonderful charity and all the special people we met.

The Great!

Sitting in a planning meeting for another event I sat and listened to the Founders of Circle of Care speak about their passion for helping families who children's lives had been touched by Cancer. Liz and Dawn have been exactly where these families are now and know exactly what they need to do to be helpful and make an impact. When you realize, that you yourself could find yourself in a hospital with your child who has just been diagnosed with cancer and you have not been home all day, or eaten, and have $2 in your pocket, you need someone. You need Circle of Care. You realize they are indeed providing amazing service. I had a pit in my stomach and knew I was called to get involved. I volunteered to help in any way I could. Circle of Care makes a difference EVERY SINGLE DAY to someone. All who come in contact with them are very blessed!

The Great!

I met the three women who started Circle of Care a few years back through a mutual friend. I started off helping out with a fundraiser and saw right away the incredible motivation, willpower and dedication these women possessed. Hearing their stories about how their children survived cancer was so inspiring to me. They met and wanted to help other mothers feel like they had a support system because when your child is diagnosed with cancer the world falls from beneath you. I too, am the mother of a cancer survivor, so I could relate to their crusade. I was, and still am, in awe of these women. We all have other children, families, extra curricular activities, etc. and they are still out there trying to raise awareness and pounding the pavement in order to help other families that are experiencing pediatric cancer. It's amazing how you can feel a connection with someone by exchanging chemo stories, blood transfusions, relapses, all things that we wish no one has to go through. Circle of Care is an organization that brings a special light to a community that is growing day by day. It's nice to know someone out there cares and wants to help in any little way possible.

The Great!

Review from Guidestar

I first learned of Circle of Care for Families of Children with Cancer when asked to volunteer on a fundraiser about 4 years ago. I have been volunteering ever since because I know my efforts can make a big difference!
What is immediately appealing about Circle of Care's services is the
thoughtful and immediate help they provide to families; their care begins from the day of diagnosis and endures throughout the end of treatment, comforting patients as well as their families.
Circle of Care fulfills the emotional as well as the practical needs. Everyday essentials fill the Bags of Love and accompany patients on admittance; laptop computers are available for patient and parent use to ease communication and research, a resource directory and respite support from well-trained, loving volunteers, as well as financial aid are among our programs. The difference Circle of Care makes is palpable.
Circle of Care is a community of love and support to families who need it most and deserves top-rating status!

The Great!
