Family Support

A diagnosis of cancer is one of the most emotionally devastating events a family can experience. We are here to help you during this difficult time. Our Navigation Coordinator, Family Support Representative, and Wellness Coordinator are available to assist you and your family with special services and requests.

Ronald McDonald House New York "Angel On A Leash" Program

Pet therapy gives our children a wonderful escape from their illness. That’s because the dogs don’t see them as kids with cancer. They just see them as kids, and they always shower them with love and affection.
