CANCER FAMILY CARE
has provided therapeutic counseling, education, support, and hope to children, adults, and families touched by cancer in Greater Cincinnati.
IT’S OUR MISSION
Our mission is to strengthen the well-being and alleviate the suffering of any child, adult, or family coping with cancer.
Family Connect, formerly called Walking the Dinosaur, is a program designed to aid children and adolescents (ages 5-18) in coping with a loved one's cancer diagnosis. At the session, children will attend their own age-appropriate support group while parents/caregivers attend an adult group.
In 2003, Cancer Family Care established the Unsung Hero Awards in memory of Joslin Haggart Yeiser. According to her husband, Eric Yeiser, Joslin was a quiet hero. “It is fitting that the Unsung Hero Awards be named for Joslin,” Mr. Yeiser explained. “Even in her last months, when she was suffering from cancer and in pain, she was still able to maintain her smile, sense of humor, and served as an inspiration to all who knew her.”
