PROGRAM EVENT CALENDAR

TESTIMONIALS

"We are thankful for organizations like PCFLV, that take away some of the worries with activities like Camp Smile and fun family outings, but mostly for a network of families that fight the same battle."

Steve, father of Cancer Warrior

"The Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley has been our rock this past year. They were there with overnight necessities when the hospital was our home, with gas cards and cafeteria cards, with game tickets, super heroes, and parties. They helped me connect to other parents that knew what we were going through."

Larissa, mother of Cancer Warrior
