Returning home from the hospital can be a disorienting and isolating feeling. You, your ill child and your other children, too, may find yourselves struggling to adjust to a familiar place where everything has changed. Once again, Making Headway is there. With the help of our Ongoing Care team, we provide a range of free services:

Individual or group therapy for any member of the immediate family;

The active support of an educational advocate, who can work with your family and the school to ensure your child’s educational needs are being met;

Bereavement support and assistance with funeral expenses for those who need it;

Each year, we also provide college scholarships to several talented young brain or spinal cord tumor survivors. Learn more about our scholarships .
