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
I have been with the Pediatric Oncology Support Team (POST) for 19 years and I can't think of another organization that treats young cancer heroes with such compassion and competence. I am proud of the near 2,000 families we have help with emotional and financial support. We wrap our arms around families, both literally and figuratively, and make sure they don't want their child's cancer journey alone.
