A Community of Care

Childhood cancer patients and their families face a difficult journey, but they don’t have to face it alone. Patients and families are part of a community that offers support to those who need it – from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.

At Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s, we recognize that support is a key part of patient care. Because of this, we are committed to caring for children and their entire families, connecting them to other patients and families and offering support services including child life specialists, music therapy, back-to-school programs, and special events.


In these videos, patients, families, and friends describe their own communities of care and offer advice on how you can support childhood cancer patients.
