Including the whole family in patient engagement!

Who are our Siblings? 

  • Siblings are a keystone in anyone's family and an integral part of the extended support group. Siblings provide friendship, comfort, and often much-needed levity. The goal of the iCAN Siblings Chapter is to provide those same siblings, who are so essential, an avenue by which they can share their own stories. Siblings have a voice too, and they are deeply valued within the pediatric care system. Ultimately, the creation of the Siblings Chapter helps highlight an important experience for many people around the world.
