Triage Cancer celebrates its 10th anniversary with a free magic show for children with cancer, sponsorships available

Triage Cancer, a national nonprofit organization providing free education on legal and practical issues that arise after a cancer diagnosis, will host an online magic show just for children with cancer and their families on Thursday, October 13. The free event is the culmination of Triage Cancer’s 10th anniversary celebration.

Families will be entertained by ‘Stand Up Magician’ Derek Hughes. For more event details and to register, parents can visit TriageCancer.org/MagicShow-Register. Registration is open until Friday, September 30. Each child will receive a gift bag of gifts in the mail. The bags will also contain educational resources for parents to help them navigate the care of their child.

Healthcare professionals serving pediatric patients or people who know a family with a child with cancer are encouraged to share this information with parents.

“When it came time to commemorate our anniversary and our proud history of helping those facing a cancer diagnosis, we knew there would be no better way to celebrate than to put a smile on the face of the youngest members of the cancer community,” said Joanna Morales, CEO of Triage Cancer.

Although the event is only open to children with cancer and their families, the public is invited to donate and sponsor tickets. Donations of any amount will help bring a moment of lightness and wonder to families. The financial support will also help Triage Cancer continue its mission of ensuring that people receive the support and information they need to find the right health insurance plan, access quality care, stay at home, follow a training, keep their jobs and avoid financial toxicity.

Donations can be made online and sponsorship information for organizations is available at TriageCancer.org/BirthdayBash.
