This week, Fact Friday is brought to you by our friends at Momcology, a group of women bound by one thing – being the mom of a child diagnosed with cancer. These women are caretakers, nurses, nutritionists, physical therapists, inventors, world-class entertainers, teachers, philanthropists, psychologists and advocates every single second of their lives after the moment they hear the words, “your child has cancer.
We are beyond excited to announce we are teaming up with Momcology, starting this September during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Hear directly from their Founder, Kim Buff.
“Your child has cancer.”
These four words devastate the path of a family’s future.
Momcology’s mission is to facilitate critical information sharing and peer support for pediatric cancer families as they begin to navigate life after diagnosis while caring for a very ill child.
Today 1 in 5 children will not survive childhood cancer. Momcology has partnered with Cookies for Kids’ Cancer to change these statistics by focusing on the most promising collaborative research in the world through directly funding the Children’s Oncology Group Phase I & Pilot Consortium at the top 21 peer reviewed research hospitals across the country.
Children are diagnosed and treated with cancer in every community. Momcology believes in collaboration, transparency and aggressively working with others toward our ultimate goal to eradicate childhood cancer so that every child has the chance to simply grow up and experience a healthy life.
Thank you for being a Good Cookie and supporting our Tough Cookies.
Kim Buff and all the Moms of Momcology
