Fighting Illness With Love. Chai Lifeline restores the light of childhood to children whose innocence ended when cancer, life-threatening, or lifelong illness was diagnosed. Through free programs that address the emotional, social, and financial needs of seriously ill children, their families, and communities, Chai Lifeline restores normalcy to family life, and better enables families to withstand the crises and challenges of serious pediatric illness.
Good Grief’s mission is to provide unlimited and free support to children, teens, young adults, and families after the death of a mother, father, sister, or brother through peer support programs, education, and advocacy.
Rainbows for All Children is an international, nonprofit organization that trains volunteers at community-based sites to lead structured, age-specific support groups, free of charge, for children 3-18 years old who are grieving the loss of a family member as a result of death, separation/divorce, incarceration, deployment, deportation, significant illness, or another life-altering, traumatic event. Since 1983, Rainbows has served over 3.5 million children by providing them support and helping them to develop and strengthen problem-solving and coping skills, learn stress and anger management, alleviate depression and anxiety, improve communication skills, and reduce emotional pain and suffering
