Hope is one of the greatest allies supporting quality of life. Hope can be a major tool of empowerment and an element for sustaining life and the will to live. We hope for better times. We hope for remission. April is the National Month of Hope and we're going to take a look at what that means for children battling cancer and blood disorders as well as what role it can play in all of our lives.
Did you know that April is National Internship Awareness Month? Internships are a great way for the workforce of tomorrow to get hands-on experience and learn while doing. The Valerie Fund is proud to partner with local schools like Montclair State University and we're excited to introduce you to our current intern, Matt!
The Valerie Fund Children's Centers are home to many healthcare heroes who support our kids during some of the most difficult times of their lives. These caregivers are experts in a variety of practices. We will be showcasing each service provided in our Children's Centers and hearing from the healthcare providers in their own words what they do for our kids and families. In this installment, we are going to learn about the Educational Liaisons.

One of our favorite things in the world is seeing Valerie Fund kids not only thriving after treatment but wanting to give back. Many of our kids experience the generosity of The Valerie Fund's supporters and want to pay it forward to the patients currently in treatment. We will be bringing you stories of some of these amazing kids who may have been dealt a tough hand but only want to use their strength to help others. Today we are taking a look at Shariah and her new business, Straps By Shai.
In keeping with our mission of treating the whole child and family, the caregivers at The Valerie Fund Children’s Centers use every available resource to ensure the well-being of their families. Many of those most vulnerable have benefited from specially designated emergency funds.
The Valerie Fund Scholarship program is just one way we help support our kids on their way to adulthood. Please join us in congratulating the Valerie Fund Scholars for the 2020-2021 academic year.
As many as two out of every three childhood cancer survivors will develop at least one late-onset complication. These situations can require an additional and specific set of responses from a patient's team of caregivers. The Valerie Fund is thrilled to introduce you to one of our newest caregivers who specializes in this group of patients.
2021 is a brand new year and we are excited to announce that the 2021 Valerie Fund Walk & 5K website is officially open and ready to process registrations and donations! In the coming months there will be plenty of new details and exciting news to share about the event.
