Families

Welcome to Families Fighting Childhood Cancer’s webpage!  This webpage is provided for families in Oklahoma who have had a child diagnosed with childhood cancer.  We are glad you are interested in learning more about what we do!

OFN logoFamilies Fighting Childhood Cancer (FFCC) is a support network provided by Oklahoma Family Network for families who have had a child diagnosed with cancer.  The Oklahoma Family Network (OFN) informs and connects families who have children with special health care needs and disabilities to services and resources in their communities. OFN provides opportunities for individuals and families to strengthen their communities through leadership development and volunteering.  Training is available to help the families care for and advocate for their child.  Visit the OFN webpage at www.OklahomaFamilyNetwork.org.

FFCC connects families based on the age and diagnosis of the child. Families are connected with local and national resources, including a support group in Tulsa.  In addition to providing support for families, opportunities are available to get involved with raising awareness and funding for childhood cancer research.  Our main goal is building a community of families who have a common bond so that no one fights this battle alone.

TTPOklahoma Family Network/Families Fighting Childhood Cancer has been honored to be a Turn Tulsa Pink sponsored charity every year since 2012. Turn Tulsa Pink does fundraising to support ALL people with ANY cancer.  They choose local charities that provide resources and support to people affected by cancer and the funds they raise are split between the charities.  Because of this funding we have been able to provide the support group and the Christmas Party.  This also provides many opportunities to have fun and raise awareness while also building community with the families while attending Turn Tulsa Pink Events.  Please see our Calendar tab to see upcoming events.
