provides hope through our individualized mentoring and community support services to empower children experiencing trauma through a parent, guardian or sibling’s cancer journey.
What’s it like…
Imagine, if you will, being 11 years old, at home late at night by yourself because your dad just left for the 3rd time this week to take your mom to the hospital again.
Imagine, being 13 years old and learning that your mom was sick and within just a few short months having her pass away the day after Christmas.
Imagine, being faced with cancer and its devastating effects when your friends are all getting the chance to just be kids.
Walk With Sally comes into the lives of children with stories just like this. Through our programs and services we are able to offer hope to families at times when things may seem hopeless. We are able to give that young adult some extra money for school through our scholarship. We are able to help families with some extra holiday cheer through our hope for the holidays support program. And perhaps most of all, we strive to foster trusting and loving relationships between children and their mentors so that they might be able to help each other heal from the devastating affects that cancer can have on us all.
