When a person is diagnosed with cancer it affects those around them. At Walk With Sally, we wrap our arms around the family by providing free, one-on-one mentoring and community support to the children of loved ones who have been impacted by cancer regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and regardless of income.
Cancer changes everything. Every year 2 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer and almost 10 million Americans live with cancer already. Of these millions, 1 in 4 is a parent. The universal concern for every parent is “What will happen to my child?”
Walk With Sally believes no child should walk alone in the face of a loved one’s cancer journey. Because we don’t want cancer to define or limit children for the rest of their lives, we create hope, healing and a supportive community through individualized mentoring, which transforms the lives not only of the children, but also of the families impacted by cancer.
WWS was founded on the basis that no child should feel isolated because of cancer. We bring together interests, ages, financial backgrounds, gender, ethnicities, sexual orientations, socio-economics, and beliefs of not only minority and underrepresented groups but also of the dominant group. Everyone receives equal access to opportunities while ensuring our processes and programs are impartial and fair and provide the same possible outcomes for everyone in the community.
WWS thrives to be a place where all voices are heard equally, creating innovation and leading to a successful organization where every member is able to show up and honor their background
