Review for Mattie Miracle Cancer Foundation, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Mattie Miracle Childhood Cancer Foundation has added a dimension to the treatment of children with Cancer that has long been needed. Along with best medical care, children, their families, from day of diagnosis need Psychosocial Support in many areas that match the Medical treatment. These areas are paramount to every patient, those that reach survivorship, those children who die from their disease. Mattie Miracle does this with food carts at two area hospitals containing fun treats for the whole family plus toiletry items for families members. Mattie Miracle is responsible for two Child Life Specialists whose positions bring special fun to a room or a play area. Mattie’s parents Vicki & Peter Brown want to make a difference for kids in treatment to make sure in all ways their Psychosocial needs are met as equally as their medical needs. Children with Cancer, their parents, face daily an array of emotions, fears, uncertainty, how best to help their child. Finding the best Specialists for this area of care, armed with solutions to provide assistance with all Psychosocial needs will help the child & family members know their child’s needs are being met in every aspect of care. Their mission is, IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT THE MEDICINE, and it isn’t!
