Behind Every Child With Cancer Is a Warrior Mama
Imagine you were forced to join the worst club ever. You didn’t have a choice. You knew nothing about the road before you. But then up ahead, there were people who had also been forced into the club. They are reaching out their arms and hearts to you. That club is childhood cancer.
Children’s cancers receive less than 4 percent of the federal government’s total funding for cancer research. Let that sink in for a minute. It’s not even 4 percent. It’s less than 4 percent. Can you even fathom that? We can, and so will the 43 families whose child will be diagnosed with childhood cancer today and tomorrow and every day after. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease among children in the United States. We are committed to supporting, advocating for, and connecting childhood cancer families.
Care Packages & Bracelets
We are honored to provide Warrior Mama care packages to Mama’s who are currently in the treatment stage with their child. The care packages were curated by Drew’s mom and contain items that she found extremely useful during inpatient days with Drew. Each package contains a letter to the Mama explaining our story and why each item was chosen. Bracelets are available for Mama’s who are in the post-treatment stage with their child.
Covid brings an additional hardship to families during treatment. We pray that these unique care packages and handmade bracelets bring a smile to the face of a mom who is worn down from the constant advocating and mentally exhausting battle that is the traumatic experience of childhood cancer.
The Warrior Mama Project was born after our personal experience navigating childhood cancer. Our son Drew was diagnosed with stage IV rhabdomyosarcoma on May 10, 2019. Drew completed 42 weeks of frontline chemo, 6 additional months of maintenance chemo, 6 weeks of daily sedated proton radiation to his right jaw with an additional week to his spine. He was declared no evidence of disease on July 7, 2020.
