Together's Vision

Families are often overwhelmed in their search for reliable health information related to their child’s disease and treatment. Because childhood cancer is rare, many families are not able to find trusted resources. Together offers families comprehensive medical information, supportive care resources, and shared stories of hope, healing and experience.

Together's Purpose

It provides trustworthy, up-to-date medical information and connect users with personally relevant topics in a clear, easy to use format. Together focuses on providing content that appeals to a variety of preferred learning styles and offers resources that families can use throughout the entire cancer journey.
