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

Rating: 5 stars  

The Mattie Miracle Cancer Foundation, initiated and led by parents of Mattie Brown, a child who died of cancer 10 years ago, is an amazing and highly effective organization. MMCF is unique in its focus on psychosocial care in pediatric cancer. The Browns have created a network of leaders in pediatric psychosocial oncology and collaborated to complete systematic reviews that support 15 aspects of psychosocial care. These reviews resulted in the development of Standards of Psychosocial Care in Childhood Cancer. These Standards are critically important and now poised for implementation, which MMCF continues to support. It is a great pleasure to work with MMCF on this critically important work.

Thank you for answering my email in 2010, for chairing the first ever childhood cancer Psychosocial Symposium on Capitol Hill, and for being a member of the core team for the development and implementation of evidence based Standards of Care. We feel honored to be able to work with you over all these years.
