Friends of Karen provides support to families in the NY Tri-State area who are caring for a child diagnosed with cancer or another life-threatening illness. Founded in 1978, Friends of Karen’s experienced social workers work with every family member throughout the child’s illness which can last many months or even years. Each family receives an individualized program of emotional, financial and day-to-day assistance to help them remain stable, functioning and able to cope. With a comprehensive sibling support program, child life specialists and creative arts therapists work with the other children in the family to help them manage their fears and concerns. No family should have to go through their child’s illness alone. Friends of Karen is a lifeline of support.
“At a time when our world was upside down and we didn’t know how we were going to tackle our day-to-day lives, Friends of Karen was there to pick up the pieces. We are so grateful to have them in our lives.” – A Friends of Karen mom.
