Information and Support During Treatment

The NCCS offers several family support programs

Family Support Program

Our Family Support Program helps ease the emotional strain a childhood cancer diagnosis takes on families by providing a case manager who stands by a family’s side throughout their journey. NCCS case managers are trained in providing practical and emotional support to parents and caregivers. These dedicated individuals offer support during difficult times, educate parents and caregivers on how to best advocate for their child and provide referrals when needed.

nccs mentoring program

Our Mentoring Program pairs a younger child in treatment (ages 10-17) with one of our scholarship recipients. Mentors will offer their support and time to encourage their mentee as they face the challenges of childhood cancer. They will be a knowledgeable and experienced guide, a trusted ally and caring role model.

The NCCS publishes a quarterly e-newsletter filled with invaluable insights, personal stories, and practical tips for families touched by childhood cancer.

Sign up to receive The Hope Connection and read past articles that can help you through your childhood cancer journey.


The organization hosts a private Facebook group that provides a compassionate and supportive environment for childhood cancer survivors and their parents/guardians. The group provides a safe place to connect with peers, share tips/resources and provide or receive encouragement.

You can also find helpful information in our many free publications. “The Other Side of the Mountain” was developed for parents and families throughout each phase of their child’s treatment, along with other important aspects of life-from emotional struggles and spiritual growth, to health insurance, school and family.
