Families of Children with Cancer Inc.

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.

Gold Ribbon - Childhood Cancer

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.

- 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."
