After having a child diagnosed with cancer, our family started Fostership in hopes to reach out with support and resources to families who are starting an unexpected, heartbreaking and isolating journey when their child is diagnosed with cancer.
To deliver care packages which will aid families in Calgary, Alberta who have a child recently diagnosed with cancer. The packages will include items that will assist in their unexpected admission to the hospital and contain information on available resources and supports to the family.
This summer will see Graham undertake multiple events and covering at least 3,500 Km of self-propelled adventure between June and September. 3,500 Km is intended to represent the roughly 3 1/2 years that Foster spent in cancer treatment.
Each year, about 1,500 children and teens in Canada are diagnosed with cancer – cancer is the leading cause of death due to disease in kids.
In Alberta, about 150 of those children are diagnosed every year.
No cape is required to be a superhero to families with a child recently diagnosed with cancer in Alberta. Your generous donation will fund our mission to deliver care packages full of love and support.
