POST’s Mission

The Pediatric Oncology Support Team (POST) helps local children and their families (in 6 South Florida counties) courageously fight cancer by giving them compassionate emotional and financial support. We partner with families to provide support, teach new skills, offer new perspectives, and help to reinforce their natural resiliency.

POST’s Vision

The vision of POST is that no family walks their child’s cancer journey alone. We have an ultimate vision of a world without childhood cancer. Until then our vision is that every family who has a child battling cancer will have a team of caring professionals walk with them through their cancer journey, giving the emotional and financial support they need.

Who We Help

POST exists because children get cancer too. And families who have a child with cancer need hope and help.

Pediatric oncologists and nurses provide the medical care that children need. POST provides everything else. The doctors depend on to help families.

We give free, family-centered support to children with cancer and their families living in six counties in Southeast Florida (Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Okeechobee and Hendry counties) regardless of where they are treated.


  • Any child, teen, or young adult age 0-21 being treated for cancer by a pediatric oncologist and living in one of the six counties listed, or

  • Any patient who lives in Florida and is currently receiving treatment for cancer in Palm Beach County by a pediatric oncologist
