Christopher's Haven, Inc.

MISSION STATEMENT

When your child has cancer, you’ll do anywhere to find a cure. More often than not, that means going far from home – to a new and unfamiliar city, filled with people you don’t know and places you can’t find. You spend your days with doctors and treatment protocols. And you spend your nights trying to find some comfort in an uncomfortable place. Worst of all, you and your sick child feel like you’re on your own. Alone.

We don’t believe that’s the way to help a kid beat cancer.

When a kid is fighting cancer, he needs some respite from hospital beds and lab coats and treatments. She needs her family, and some space to be with them. She needs someplace to play, to be with other kids just like her, to feel less alone, less afraid. The family needs that, too.

We are Christopher’s Haven. We are a home for kids and their families while they battle cancer. Our home is more than a place to stay, it’s a support system to help with things large and small, and a community where families can be together, share a laugh, be comforted, and comfort others. Christopher’s Haven allows kids and families to focus their energies on beating the cancer that has attacked them all.

We know that medicine can heal the patient. Christopher’s Haven helps heal the child.
