Imagine what life would be like for your family if one of your children was stricken with cancer. It turns your life, and the lives of everyone in your family upside down. Fortunately for the sick child, everyone rushes to help that child in anyway they can. Unfortunately, if your a sibling of the sick child, many times your are forgotten and your are expected to put your life on hold while everyone focuses on the needs of your brother or sister. An adult can process and understand this, but a six year old boy that has to quit the soccer team or a 9 year old girl that has to given up her passion of learning to play piano, because they have to drive 4 hours roundtrip three days a week for their sibling's cancer treatments, does not understand. What they do feel is the loneliness, the desperation, and the need to feel important. These siblings seek support to remind them that they are not alone in this unwanted journey and they want someone to remember them and to know that they are important as well. Documented studies show these children face a lifetime of psychological issues when they do not receive the support. SuperSibs! help provide comfort and care to these often forgotten vulnerable children.
