We provide a variety of programs and events, free of charge, for kids who are receiving cancer treatment in hospitals.
Mommy, I Have Cancer provides services to children with cancer as well as their families, specializing in counseling, student tutoring, helping to prepare the patients, and the family on how life will be different now that my child has cancer.
Mommy, I Have Cancer will help each child and the family adjust to the illness, talk about diagnosis, cope with treatment and its side effects, manage mood changes and behavioral challenges, learn to ease stress and anxiety, address school concerns, and support siblings.
Mommy, I Have Cancer provides service to children with cancer as well as their families through its three major divisions: Diversionary Therapy, Palliative Care Oncology, Art Expression, and Healthy Lifestyle Education.
The Diversionary Therapy division provides families faced with children with cancer with activities that redirect the involvement of leisure, recreation, and play by reducing barriers. It provides social workers who can help children and teens with cancer.
Pediatric Oncology-Oncology and Palliative Care:
The Pediatric Oncology division is focused on restoring the emotional, educational, and social development of the child and the child’s family after a pediatric cancer diagnosis with Art Expression.
We provide utility and housing assistance, supplement payments for medication and medical visits, scholarships for patients attending college, and transportation.
UNDERSTANDING PEDIATRIC CANCER
The word cancer refers to changes in the body’s cells that cause them to grow out of control. These cells can grow very fast and spread, eventually crowding out normal cells and damaging entire systems of the body.
Cancer can occur in almost any cell. It begins with damaged DNA, the “building block of life” that controls all cell functions, including when to divide (reproduce) and when to die. When DNA is damaged, cells can divide rapidly or outlive normal cells. Most of the time, the body’s immune system recognizes these damaged cells and destroys them. However, if this normal process does not happen, a tumor can grow. A tumor is a mass, or collection, of cells. Tumors can be benign or malignant.
