COUNSELING, UNDERSTANDING, RESEARCH, EDUCATION
“Your child has cancer.” Families who hear those words live in a world transformed by disease. Daily life is filled with fear, confusion, stress, and emotion. No medical treatment can cure these afflictions. World-class medical care is available in the Rochester area, but patients and families need more than medical care to cope with chronic, life-threatening, and terminal childhood diseases. CURE is there to help and meet the very specific needs of families who are caring for a chronically ill child.
