Who Are We?
Pickles Group, founded in 2019, is a growing national 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Chicago, Illinois. One in twenty kids will experience a parent’s cancer diagnosis before they graduate high school. At Pickles Group, we know that having a parent or caregiver with cancer can be a lonely, isolating experience. That's why our mission is to provide free peer-to-peer support and resources to kids affected by their parent's cancer. Pickles kids strengthen resilience, have fun with friends who understand them, and heal along the way.
How do we do it? Through play and art-based activities, outings, and family-friendly resources designed by a leading family therapist and informed by the lived experience of kids, families, and healthcare professionals. We're working to ensure every child has a community of support through their parent's cancer.
Pickles Group believes that every family navigating a parent or caregiver’s cancer deserves an equitable opportunity to heal and thrive in life. We invite you to read our full Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access here and consider how you can deliver on that commitment as one of our volunteers.
