Citra Health Provides Support to Momcology and Pediatric Cancer Families
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/
“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.”
Momcology is a non-profit organization providing a medical and social support community for mothers and primary caregivers of children diagnosed with cancer. Momcology connects caretakers through a unique, technology-based platform and links oncology parents by diagnosis, region, and cross-diagnosis specialty groups. The Momcology community includes over 35 national support groups to meet the needs of members and support families in all stages of a pediatric cancer diagnosis. Momcology also provides regional respite retreats for mothers of children with cancer. For more information, visit www.momcology.org.
