Online Community for Families

When you’re a part of our community, you’re never alone. We’ve created a place where parents, patients and families can easily connect with one another to discuss their child’s illness, condition and treatment. Community members can share stories and updates and ask questions about the treatment and recovery process, within specific community groups. Community members can choose to join specific groups and follow updates from individual members, and will have the ability to publicly and privately communicate with other community members. Parents can view upcoming events related to their child’s condition and will have access to health resources provided by our specialists at the hospital to help navigate their child’s diagnosis and treatment.
