JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Nov. 17, 2015 - PRLog -- As part of the company’s commitment to social responsibility on behalf of its team members, Citra Health Solutions presented a check this month to Momcology, a Jacksonville-based non-profit organization. Momcology was founded with the mission to provide support to parents of pediatric cancer patients allowing them to be the source of strength to their children as they battle the disease. Momcology bridges the gap of isolation and loneliness that a parent feels after their child is diagnosed with cancer by facilitating an international peer support network and events that encourage parents to be part of a compassionate, healing and empowering community.

In addition to volunteering their time on various Momcology outreach projects throughout the year, Citra recently held a corporate fund-matching program. The funds raised will go directly to support the execution of numerous restorative retreats around the United States in 2016. For more information, please visit www.momcology.org/sitepage/retreats.

“We are appreciative for the support we are receiving from our corporate sponsors in the healthcare industry.  Citra Health Solutions has not only donated financially, but has also volunteered time in the office to help with projects and retreats.  Enabling caregivers time to come out of isolation and experience healing with other parents going through similar challenges is a life changing experience.  Momcology is committed to helping parents find balance in their life after it has been turned upside down.  We are grateful that Citra understands that healthcare is more than the clinical side of treatment, but the emotional side as well. We are honored to have their partnership as we continue to grow and reach more families with our program offerings,” said Kim Buff, President & Founder of Momcology.

Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease for children in the United States, and more than 40,000 kids undergo treatment for cancer each year.

Eric Olofson, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Information Officer for Citra Health Solutions said, “If we can help one family find hope and support, then we have done our job. No family should have to face these struggles, but they certainly can’t do it alone. Momcology is a unique resource and a powerful partner in the fight against childhood cancer.”
