The people at the POST team are INCREDIBLE!! When my son was diagnosed with leukemia as an infant, I had no where else to turn. They made me feel like I could do it. I never even thought of my child getting cancer and it was shocking to get that news. Watching my baby get chemo was almost more than I could bear. I couldn't have done it alone, and I didn't have to because Barbara, Terrie, Carmengloria, and Hilary were there for me. POST is my second home. Even though my son is finished with his four years of treatment, he still wants to go see the "girls" at POST. He thinks they're family.
When my 11 year old daughter was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, I was stunned. I didn't know what to do or who to turn to. Thank God for the POST team who came to my rescue, helping us learn to manage the complicated chemo schedule and know how to tell our 6 year old son his sister has cancer. The therapist went to my daughter's school, explained to her peers what was happening and how they could be supportive. They gave us counseling so we didn't lose our minds and they became likefamily. What else can I say? They ARE our family. They are the BEST!
Everyone at POST is fantastic! When our daughter was first diagnosed with leukemia we were in complete shock, had no idea what to do for the non-treatment side of this journey like paying for medical expenses not covered by our insurance and what to do about school. Fortunately, Carmengloria, Hilary and Terrie helped us navigate the way and put us in touch with other helpful people. I can't say enough good things about the amazing people at POST.
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.
