In this section of our web site we provide links that offer a variety of resources for children with cancer and their parents. Our intent in providing these links is simply to make information available. The inclusion of any website link does not imply endorsement by The Emily Dorfman Foundation for Children of the link or resource accessed through the link. You are strongly advised to thoroughly investigate all information presented and claims made of a medical or spiritual nature, and judge with common sense the validity of the information and the claims. Perhaps this goes without saying, but you should seek the advice of your (or your child's) health care provider before acting upon or relying upon any information from these links and resources.
