Cure Childhood Cancer

Early Outreach

We know how devastating it is to learn that a child has cancer. Families facing a new diagnosis are oftenfilled with fear and anxiety – and they need to know they’re not alone. That’s where our Early Outreach Program comes in. It provides families of newly diagnosed children with much-needed encouragement and important resources to help them begin their journey with childhood cancer.

As part of the outreach program, we spend time with families at the outpatient clinic, on the inpatient units where appropriate and at Open Arms, keeping in contact with nurses, social workers and other hospital staff to address needs on the units.Through this program, newly diagnosed pediatric cancer patients are given CURE Travel Totes. These totes include practical information, tips, and other useful items for families facing a cancer diagnosis. A symbol of the beginning of our relationship with patients and their families, the totes open the door for our trained staff who will always be there as a source of support, help and encouragement for every one of our families.
