The Mom2Mom Valerie Fund project comprises two different helplines—one that helps mothers whose children are battling cancer and a new line for mothers whose children are battling blood disorders. In its first two years, the program has had over 2300 contacts with family members through weekly calls, monthly support groups and 41 events and training.
“The Valerie Fund helps distract me from the “pokes” and tests with funny cartoons on TV or games played on an iPad. They let me make some decisions of my own like choosing my own Band Aid character. ”
