What is Momcology?
Momcology is 501c3 nonprofit organization that facilitates peer support for parents and primary care-givers of children who have been diagnosed with pediatric cancer. You must have legal and medical authority for a child clinically diagnosed with cancer to participate in Momcology online support and Momcology programs/events.
What makes Momcology different from other cancer support groups?
Momcology has several arms of support to meet every emotional need from diagnosis, through treatment and life post cancer. Momcology relies on the experience of other parents who have been through similar cancer journeys for guidance and support. Momcology is a live, active and streaming support system that offers encouragement and help for parents no matter where they are, or what specific treatment their child is going through. Whether your need is diagnosis specific, regional help is required, or you have a question that spans our whole Momcology community, there is a group for you where you will find compassionate and useful support.
