Jacob's Heart Children's Cancer Support Services

Mission

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.

The Big Idea

Jacob’s Heart Children’s Cancer Support Services improves the lives of children with cancer and helps their families navigate the challenging path they face. Some families with medically fragile children are already hard-hit socioeconomically. Jacob’s Heart recognizes that many bicultural families, in particular, do not have the resources they need to deal with their children’s medical challenges. That’s why their Big Idea is to hire bicultural psychotherapists, counselors and staff to help these families. Jacob’s Heart’s Forever Loved grief support program will also expand to create Forever Siblings, a peer-mentorship children’s grief support program.

"Jacob's Heart asks how Anthony is feeling, they bring us diapers. They think about him and about us. Many groups are helping us, but what Jacob's Heart does is personal."
