Each year on April 28, we celebrate National BraveHearts Day to honor the bravery of families dealing with pediatric cancer. During this time, pay tribute and support the families and friends of those involved in the child’s life.
Navigating through cancer is hard and often scary. Families who have children with cancer need a good support system, but don’t know where to turn. However, there is hope for families struggling with pediatric cancer through a cell phone app called Spotlight Hope. This free app provides information on local resources, financial help, and transportation. In addition, Spotlight Hope provides a connection to other families who are also experiencing a similar situation. Most importantly, Spotlight Hope is designed to help navigate pediatric cancer by finding people who they can rely on for help.
