Donations toward this programme enables the MCHCT to connect a volunteer with every family diagnosed with cancer. This volunteer is usually someone who can relate to the experience because their child was diagnosed with cancer previously.
We know how to quickly:
- stabilise the family
- access and interpret information,
- connect the primary caregiver with the right people and tackle the hospital processes that can be so confusing and overwhelming
By being there for the primary caregivers, improving their knowledge and building a community around them, we are connecting, building strength in and empowering our families.
Not all of the our family volunteers are in the financial position to support others and donating toward these costs enable them to share their love with those who have come after them.
