Circle of Care for Families of Children with Cancer, Inc

Mission Statement

Circle of Care for families of children with cancer is a nonprofit organization that provides practical, emotional, and financial support from day of diagnosis, through treatment, and beyond. Their programs and services address the unique and challenging non-medical needs of childhood cancer because, having been there themselves, they know kids need more than medicine to heal.

Circle of Care’s story began with mothers who had heard the words no one ever wants to hear, “Your child has cancer.” Since 2003, the organization has been fulfilling its mission to help ease the journey for families facing childhood cancer—supporting over 3000 families in Connecticut, transforming 150 rooms through their dream makeover program, and providing over $2M in direct financial support.

A childhood cancer diagnosis involves an immediate immersion into hospital life requiring parents and caretakers to adapt to an entirely new way of life. Circle of Care continues to stand with these families in treatment, providing a unique set of programs and services that supply immediate and needed support at every step of these families’ journeys.

While many cancer organizations offer episodic assistance, like a summer away at camp or a day trip, Circle of Care is a constant source of support. They are the only pediatric cancer organization in Connecticut that has services to last through, and beyond, a child’s cancer treatment. They are also the only pediatric cancer organization in Connecticut that offers financial assistance and other services to young adults, up to age 26. This extensive reach fills a critical service gap in the state.
