Congratulations to Olivia Gaines, First Prize Winner, 2017 Andre Sobel Award

Olivia Gaines of Los Angeles, CA is the First Prize Winner of the 2017 Andre Sobel Award. You can read Olivia's story and her letter to a friend entitled "When Cancer Takes Center Stage" on our website designed especially for newly diagnosed young patients and their famlies. Olivia's friendship and wisdom — and the compassionate advice from all of the Andre Sobel Award winners — might be just what a new patient most desperately needs in the face of uncertainty. Please share the Letters From a Friend website with the young patients you know.  

“When Compassion can’t wait and single parent families are in despair, we help with urgent expenses
to allow these caregivers to stay at their child’s bedside during catastrophic illness.”

Our Goal: To respond in 24 hours, when all other resources are exhausted.

Our Belief: By caring for the caregiver, we care for the child.
