Mission: POST is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit enhancing the social, emotional, and financial wellness for local families with cancer and their families.
Results: We incorporated in 2012 and now act as our own entity. As such, we need assistance telling the world about the wonderful work that we do! In doing so, we can raise money to help more children and their families and enhance our services.
Programs: The need for POST services arose from the unmet needs of families ̶ living in a six county area ̶ dealing with the devastation of a child diagnosed with cancer. These services include but are not limited to:
• Comprehensive Case Management and Advocacy
• Counseling for Individuals and Families
• Sibling Intervention
• Discharge Planning
• Medical Play
• Financial Crisis Stabilization
• Referral to Local and National Resources
• Support Groups
• Clinic, Hospital, Home and School Visits
• School Re-entry and Educational Planning
• Bereavement Support
Our son was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2009. When we were told the news, two members from POST were in the room with us. They were there to help us take on this horrible news, hold us up through our grief, and guide us through all the medical procedures our son would endure. Since then, the staff of POST has become our second family. Because of their excellent care, the last three and a half years were made a little easier.
