We have a few local volunteer photographers who are able to capture memorable moments in a family photo session. (Please note: At this time, we only have photographers in the Hampton Roads & Middle Peninsula areas of VA)
Parents are able to create hand molds with their child so that, in a sense, they can hold their hand forever.
Siblings struggle and many of them may be too young to process their emotions. We will provide either gift cards for Build-A-Bear or a in-person Build-A-Bear experience with your child and their siblings to pick out bears and capture their voice, so that the siblings can replay it anytime they need to.
With the photo of your choosing, we will have it enlarged so it can be displayed at their celebration of life.
We will provide gold ribbon pins with either photos of your choosing or photos that we gather (your choice) placed on each ribbon to be passed out at their celebration of life so that each attendee feels like that have a little piece of them.
We recognize that the financial burdens brought on by cancer do not just disappear after they pass. We offer financial assistance for our gold heart families (bereaved) up to 3 years after the child's passing. (Grants based on availability of funds).
If you are a Virginia-based family or were treated at a facility in Virginia and your family is transitioning to hospice or if your child has just passed and you feel that your family could use the support our program offers, please reach out to us.
