Who We Are
Five Mama Bears Working to Spread Support and Awareness
Mama Bears Fighting Childhood Cancer (MBFCC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization offering a uniquely supportive community for parents and caregivers with a child diagnosed with cancer. We support Northern California families with children up to 21-years old who is currently undergoing treatment for childhood cancer. MBFCC provides a safe and private chat community for parents and caregivers to support each other day and night through the ups and downs of treatment. The private chat community is a confidential space where parents can share, seek support, support each other, plan meet-ups during clinic and hospital stays, and so much more. We also host in-person events for parents and caregivers and their children.
In addition, we provide families whose child has an active cancer diagnosis with an MBFCC Hospital Survival Wagon or Clinic Cart based on the family's need. Our goal is to ensure that no parent walks this journey alone; our motto being, “Carry your family, We’ll carry you!”
Mama Bear Testimonial
To all the Mama Bears who helped make this gift happen, I thank you for all that you do. During such a difficult and stressful time I am so happy that I am able to feel such a great support system from all of you. A judgment-free zone, a place where we all understand our fights and struggles. A place where we motivate and encourage one another to keep being our warriors’ biggest supporters. As we received our wagon today, I couldn't help but notice the biggest smile on my son's face and the joy and excitement he felt while looking at each item. To the donors who contributed to each item in our wagon, from the bottom of my heart I would like to say thank you!! What might seem like something so small, to us brought so much joy and hope. We felt the love and felt so blessed. God bless you all, we can't wait to start using everything.
