Family Support Department (FSD)

ABF’s Family Support Department offers counseling services to children diagnosed with cancer, their parents or guardians, and their siblings. Counseling is a means to equip children with cancer and their families with coping mechanisms and assist them on how to endure this disease and the pain it causes.

Understanding the various stages of childhood cancer and how to support the needs of the child with cancer and each other as a family is crucial. Therefore, individual counseling is sometimes needed in addition to family counseling.

In light of COVID-19, the ABF Family Support Department and our partners will host ongoing virtual support groups and sessions to give continued support to children battling cancer and their families. If you would like more information or want to volunteer and/or support this group, please contact the Family Support Department:

Bereavement Department

Unfortunately, when supporting families that have sick children, their children sometimes succumb to this horrible disease. This is when the Bereavement Department is needed the most. The loss of a child is such an unnatural occurrence that parents are usually blindsided by it.

The ABF Bereavement Department’s primary focus is to help the family through this devastating transition. We do this by partnering with professional grief counselors, religious groups, counselors of different denominations (to offer religious support), and local businesses willing to make donations to aid in final resting arrangements for those who pass away.

Our support does not end there. Since the grief of a child is so astonishing, most people cannot fathom it. Therefore, the Bereavement Department and its partners will host ongoing group support sessions with families that have experienced the same trauma to assist families in need of grief support. In light of COVID-19, sessions will be held virtually until it is safe to do otherwise.

If you would like more information or to volunteer and/or support this group, please contact the Bereavement Department:
