KIDS FIRST, PATIENTS SECOND
Hope & Heroes funds comprehensive treatment programs that offer our young patients the best chance to overcome their disease while also allowing them to experience as much of their childhoods as possible.
Thanks to our generous supporters, we’re able to offer many of these programs to families free of charge through the Center for Comprehensive Wellness.
The programs we fund include:
• Innovative treatment.
We support the Developmental Therapeutics Program, one of only 21 programs of its type in the country—and the only one in the tri-state area—that can provide the newest drugs for hard to treat diseases.
• Support for the whole family.
A child’s diagnosis affects the whole family. Our Psycho-Social & Palliative Care Program provides counseling and offers support programs that help families effectively manage their lives at a very stressful time.
• Complementary medicine.
We fund the Integrative Therapies Program, which offers acupuncture,
aromatherapy, Reiki, meditation, yoga, and other approaches to ease the side effects
• Preparing patients for life after treatment.
Our Survivor Wellness Program supports our patients in making healthy lifestyle
changes and confronting side-effects and long-term quality of life issues.
