Brooke George, Family Support Coordinator
1. What brought you to CSN?
I initially found CSN when my son was in treatment for medulloblastoma. I believed in their mission of curing pediatric brain cancer and was amazed at the impact CSN had in the childhood cancer world. When the time was right, I created the first CSN medullo chapter in honor of my son, “Connor’s CUREsaders.” It was an amazing way for me to give back, fundraise and make a difference. The opportunity to join family support was presented and I was thrilled to be able to follow my passion of supporting other brain cancer families.
2. What I do at CSN
I am the Medulloblastoma Family Support Coordinator and I get the privilege of honoring all the medullo warriors! I work with families to provide any level of support or resources they may need. Whether a family is just getting started in this journey or a ways into it, I am here to offer hope and love. I just want all families to know they are not alone!
3. What I like most about my job
I love learning about all the warriors! Their stories, their personalities, why they have their nicknames! Each child is a one -of- a- kind, amazing, strong fighter with a story all their own. I am proud to be part of such an amazing organization honoring these warriors and can’t wait to have a part in finding THE HOMERUN CURE!
4. What moment have you cherished most at CSN?
There are so many great moments! Having my own child honored, becoming a chapter, being welcomed as family, meeting other warrior families…I keep wondering how I am so fortunate to be doing what I love!
5. Many people would be surprised if they knew I…
Know sign language! It’s been a fun (and very useful!) skill of mine for the last 31 years. My whole class was taught starting in kindergarten and we used to sign back and forth in class because the teachers had no idea what we were saying!
