For Childhood Cancer Families
Some families want information and resources. Others want to learn how families, like them, are dealing with a diagnosis. Still others want to raise awareness and money for more research. We have it all right here for you.
Parent to Parent Network
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s Parent to Parent Network provides the opportunity for families to connect with one another. In addition to attending fundraisers and speaking on behalf of our foundation, Hero Ambassadors are also available to help families cope by providing emotional support and sharing their experiences with other parents whose child shares the same diagnosis or is going through a similar situation. Parents can connect through emails, phone calls, or if they are comfortable enough, by meeting in person.
If you are a parent with a child who has/had cancer, and would like to connect with one of our Hero Ambassadors, please click here to request an ambassador. We will find a family or families that are most fitting according to your preferences, and provide a brief background. Once you and the Hero Ambassador agree to connect with one another, an introductory email will be sent you both.
If you would prefer to connect with others immediately, we invite you to join our Community Forumwhere you can get or give support anonymously online. Simply register and begin connecting today!
