“Ensuring that siblings of children with cancer are honored, supported and recognized so they may face the future with strength, courage and hope”
SuperSibs! Provides personalized, age-appropriate comfort and care services for siblings (aged 4-18 years) of children who are battling cancer. Other support offerings are tools and resources for Parents/Guardians, Educators and School Personnel, and Medical and Psychosocial professionals in hospitals and organizations. By providing these important support elements, SuperSibs! is working to change the culture of oncology care to ensure ongoing, evidence-based sibling support and healing as standard of care.
