Purple Pages

- For Parents -

The Purple Pages is an up to date resource guide that provides families with trusted, current information from the day of diagnosis to life after cancer and everything in between from people who have been there before. There are many great resources on the Internet but also many sites that contain inaccurate, misleading or out of date information. Our guide is peer reviewed and updated annually for websites that are professionally sponsored to ensure accuracy and reliability. Covering a wide range of topics from wigs, to summer camps, to nutrition, to financial support this comprehensive guide is indispensable. We know how important it is to know even the littlest of things that change in this journey from day one. Because of this, this resource is included in every bag of love so families have an in-depth hands-on guide.

  • Our directory of websites, books, videos and support groups for families battling childhood cancer. This book is peer reviewed and provided free of charge to all families throughout the state and available to download here.

Another great resource is The Compassionate Friends: 

  • The mission of The Compassionate Friends: When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family. They have many chapters in CT and a closed Facebook group for the loss of a child to cancer.
