Since their inception, they have been a strictly volunteer organization dedicated to addressing the practical and emotional needs of New Hampshire families dealing with pediatric cancer. Today, their volunteers have expanded to include family members, friends, and other caring individuals. The mission is to empower New Hampshire families who are coping with childhood cancer by providing knowledge, resources, assistance, and hope. The organization has twice won the Governors Award for Outstanding Volunteerism Efforts by a Statewide Group. You can find out more about the organization on their website:
