Mission Statement

The Dragonfly Foundation helps pediatric cancer patients and their families find strength, courage and joy. We do this by providing ongoing support, relevant materials, and caring, nurturing and transformative experiences.

Description

The fight for excellence in pediatric cancer treatment is important, but no less important is the commitment we must make to support the families that strive for fulfilling and complete lives during and after treatment. Though treatment may end, and illness may be cured or managed, the long-term effects of factors like internal group tension, familial isolation, post-traumatic stress, the anxiety of recurrence, and the emotional, physical and financial toll on the family unit often linger long after the battle is won or lost. While the importance of quality healthcare is a common shared value, we must remember to offer families a holistic, uncompromising, fighting chance at well-being, which is our urgent and passionate mission.

Dragonfly Families:
We support pediatric cancer patients ranging in age from birth to age 40, and their siblings/offspring and parents/spouses/caregivers
