We Care About Kids With Cancer
Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services exists to improve the quality of life for children with cancer and support their families in the challenges they face.
We provide family-centered care that addresses the emotional, practical and financial struggles for families of children and teens during treatment, families experiencing anticipatory grief and those who are bereaved.
We envision a community where every child with a serious or life-threatening condition has a strong, supported and informed family empowered to fully participate in their care. We strive to inspire compassionate action within local communities to create a safety net of support for the unique needs of each child and family.
Every child going through cancer or another life-threatening condition needs a strong and supported family able to fully participate in their care
When a child is diagnosed with cancer the entire family is in need of support, regardless of socioeconomic status
Every child’s life is precious and their dignity must remain intact throughout treatment
The loss of a child is a unique and special sorrow and families bereaved by the death of a child need on-going care and support
Our reason for existence is an unwavering dedication to providing support to parents and families
Because of these beliefs, we make every attempt to tailor our services to each family’s unique needs
