The Story

SibTember is an international movement started in 2012 to recognize and support the siblings of children with cancer. SibTember is an initiative that involves participants wearing suspenders during September to start conversations about pediatric cancer’s significant impact on families—especially siblings of the child diagnosed with cancer. SibTember garners awareness for the types of support these siblings need and helps raise funds for programs that recognize siblings. For more information, visit www.sibtember.org.

 

We wear suspenders because...

 

  • Pediatric cancer puts great strain on families; 51% of families reported that one parent had to stop working to focus on caregiving, 77% reported financial changes due to the cancer and 36% lived more than 50 miles from the closest treatment center

 

  • Over half of siblings of children with cancer report symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress and 25% qualify for a diagnosis for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

 

  • Siblings are at risk for poor academic achievement, impaired social interactions, guilt, aggressiveness, withdrawal, anxiety, tearfulness, jealousy and anxiety

 

  • Siblings exhibit high levels of risky social behaviors including smoking and substance abuse that are significantly reduced with strong social support and intervention
