The mission of the Pediatric Oncology Support Team (POST) is to help local children and their families fight cancer by giving them hope, help, and healing with compassion. We partner with families to provide support, teach new skills, offer new perspectives, and help to reinforce their natural resiliency.
Who We Help
POST exists because children get cancer too. And families who have a child with cancer need hope and help.
Pediatric oncologists and nurses provide the medical care that children need. POST provides everything else. The doctors depend on to help families.
We give free, family-centered support to children with cancer and their families living in six counties in Southeast Florida (Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Okeechobee and Hendry counties). The majority of our children receive treatment at the Palm Beach Children’s Hospital at St. Mary’s Medical Center or Palms West Hospital, however, any child being treated for cancer is eligible to receive services if they reside in one of the six counties we serve regardless of where they are treated.
Any child age 0-17 being treated for cancer and living in one of the six counties listed
Any patient age 18-22 being treated for cancer by a pediatric oncologist and living in one of the six counties listed
Any patient who lives in a Florida county and is currently receiving treatment for cancer at a pediatric oncology treatment center in Palm Beach County
