Mission Statement

The Dragonfly Foundation helps young cancer patients find strength. We provide relentless support, relevant materials, and caring, nurturing and transformative experiences that benefit the whole family. We also work to enhance the quality of life programs at partner hospitals in Ohio and Illinois.

Description

The Dragonfly Foundation supports thousands of registered and unregistered cancer and bone marrow transplant patients (birth to age 30), and their siblings/offspring and parents/caregivers. Our programs are dedicated to improving the patient experience during treatment and supporting quality of life for patients and families as they move from diagnosis through long-term recovery.

The Dragonfly Difference

The Dragonfly Foundation holds a unique place in the landscape of non-profit organizations focused on pediatric cancer. For children and young adults who have not had the opportunity to live their life to the fullest, we must be even more dedicated to supporting them as they face the physical, emotional and financial challenges of their illness, their extended and isolating hospitalizations, and their long-term recovery. The services we provide also support and benefit immediate families who struggle with the implications and realities of a loved one fighting a potentially life-limiting disease. We understand that even though treatment may end, the post-traumatic stress of treatment, the challenges of side effects from treatment and the anxiety of recurrence continue to challenge patients and families today and for years to come.
