Social Connections

Every family at Jacob’s Heart is part of our family of families.

Peer mentorship is woven throughout our programs, providing families with opportunities to talk with others who understand the complexities of pediatric cancer. Families gather at Jacob’s Heart to support one another through one of the most challenging periods in their lives.

Support Groups

Jacob's Heart fosters peer mentorship with support groups for parents and siblings. Children in treatment get the opportunity to play and create while parents get the connection they need.

How it works

We offer three monthly support groups for in-treatment, out of treatment, and bereaved families. All support groups are available in both Spanish and English.

Family Events

Our family events create moments of joy amidst the challenges of pediatric cancer. We host an annual Camp for kids in treatment, quarterly art therapy events, a holiday Adopt-a-Family program, a retreat for bereaved families and so much more.

How it works

Family Support Specialists connect with each family updating them on upcoming events. Families receive monthly newsletters with updates and ways to connect with other families.
