September is childhood cancer awareness month.  An organization called “Circle of Care” around since 2004, helps to care for families who are caring for a child with cancer. The organization has also developed “Art for the Heart” in which a child’s bedroom is transformed to their wishes to make them more comfortable. The Founder. Liz Salguero started the organization after her son was diagnosed with cancer…he’s going strong now, but when she first got the news, she hardly knew what to do next. “Circle of Care” gives out day of diagnosis bags filled with things families need to get organized for what is to come and even pays some of the parent’s expenses while they’re caring for their sick child. This wonderful Connecticut non-profit works because of private donations and volunteers.
