Children who have a sibling with cancer are thrown into a world where they are quickly introduced to sterility of hospitals, the helplessness of waiting, and life altering changes in their family. Having a brother or sister with cancer can be challenging in different ways. At times, siblings may feel invisible, angry, alone or even forgotten. We realize that siblings are unique and special – and that they need support and recognition, too!
Cool Kids Campaign is proud to host this program at our Learning Center. It is a collaboration between our organization and Johns Hopkins Hospital, University of Maryland Children’s Hospital, Sinai Hospital, and Leukemia Lymphoma Society. How wonderful to be working together in this important program that truly benefits the families!
