PATRICK'S EVERYDAY WARRIORS(a 501c3)
SHINING A LIGHT ON Childhood cancer SIBLING WARRIORS
Patrick’s Everyday Warriors strives to bring awareness to effects of pediatric cancer on the families and specifically the siblings. We provide emotional support for siblings and help siblings better communicate with their parents, the medical staff and even in their own thoughts. We acknowledge the siblings as warriors through special events, family outings, and warrior chests. And, when the journey is “over” we help the siblings (and families) be okay with “What’s Next” whether or not the families goes home with their sick child through support groups, grief recovery, and events to connect families and siblings.
Loving on families through the eyes of warriors. Patrick’s Everyday Warriors desires to be the brightest light in the darkest place. We will be a light of hope and love during a dark time (fighting childhood cancer). We will educate families on how to better communicate with their nurses, doctors, and most importantly each other.
We will acknowledge the warrior status of siblings. And, give parents opportunities to feel acknowledged as well, as moms, dads, couples, men, and women.
It is important to surround yourself with people you trust. Yes, people you trust enough to see your vision. People you trust to be there when you need them. Trust enough to tell you when your vision may be blurry. Trust enough to love the families you are called to served. And, that is exactly what Patrick's Everyday Warriors Board has created. A circle of love. A circle of trust. A circle of heart. A circle of service.
