Caring for the Caregiver is aimed at addressing the incredible emotional strain felt by the dedicated front-line caregivers of children with cancer.
- We provide support breakfasts, lunches and spontaneous “pick me ups.” We also provide meals for Good Grief lunches, which are lunches for nurses and other front line caregivers facilitated by professionals who are trained to provide emotional support during difficult losses on the cancer unit.
- On a monthly basis, we recognize and honor the strength and endurance among the front-line caregivers. Throughout the year, we work on recognizing caregivers on special occasions such as nurses week and around the holidays.
- We also provide continuing education opportunities by providing funding for classes, chemotherapy certifications, national cancer certifications, and conference support for nurses and family support team members to ensure that children with cancer receive the best possible care.
