After the initial diagnosis of cancer is made, most parents and care-givers are not emotionally prepared to handle the overwhelming amount of information related to their child's care. A Hope Binder is an organizational tool that provides easy, step by step sections to help document a child's treatment. The sections include; treatment protocols, medicines, doctor's appointments, blood counts, physicians' names, hospitals, nutrition concerns, and insurance information. The Hope Binder also contains a separate pouch with mini office supplies to help keep documents organized.
"On behalf of the Division of Pediatric Oncology here at Stony Brook I would like to thank you for providing us with the wonderful Hope Binders. These binders have been a valuable tool used by the staff during our teaching sessions with the families." Read the Letter
