Families of Children with Cancer, Inc.

FOCWC

Families of Children With Cancer was founded on the belief that when a child is sick, the entire family is affected. Their support focuses on the individual child along with the family.

Support is offered in times of need, at diagnosis, before surgery, during hospitalization, upon relapse, as death approaches, as a child is taken off treatment, and as a cured child makes his or her way to adulthood.

Family Stories and Testimonials

The stories of three local families and how Families of Children with Cancer helped them to cope.

Your head's just spinning, your jaw is still on the ground from what you've heard, you're trying to make sense of it all.

Tim Gorton

When the doctor told me she had it, I just about hit the floor. I didn't know what it was. I didn't know what to do.

Jennifer McNutt

She was two and a half at the time and even still now to this day she still... breaks down in tears about the idea of someone being sick, and she's afraid their hair's gonna fall out, and they're going to have to go to the hospital.
