As a parent with cancer, you are bound to have a lot on your mind. You have to care for
yourself and your kids. You may wonder: how do we get through this?
THE FEATHER FOUNDATION RECOGNIZES THAT:
- 3 million children live with an adult with cancer (American Cancer Society, 2016).
- Women who have childcare responsibilities experience symptoms more severely and in greater number than others who are treated with chemotherapy (Miaskowski et al, 2016).
What is The Feather Foundation? We are a 501 ( c ) 3 non-profit organization that provides financial, emotional and practical support to parents who have cancer.
Financial – help towards childcare related costs.
Emotional – online groups, guidance and tips on parenting with cancer and self-care with cancer.
Practical – a resource list of other assistance available for parents with cancer. Plus, COMING SOON! Training for healthcare professionals.
