MIB Agents is a nationwide 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to Making It Better (MIB) for kids with osteosarcoma, bone cancer.
Now Available! Osteosarcoma: From Our Family To Yours
MIB Family Agents are people and families that have been on the osteosarcoma path
who wish to offer support, love, and hope.
An osteosarcoma (OS or osteo) diagnosis is usually shocking, leaving you frightened and full of questions. Our group of OS families, further along in our journey, have found that interfacing with fellow OS families has helped immeasurably. Osteosarcoma families have been an irreplaceable group for support and guidance to each other through the challenges and successes that we have faced. Many wish that they had found the OS community sooner in their journey. Therefore we want to offer support to families through the MIB Family Agents Program. We are not doctors or medical professionals. Your medical team is your first point of contact for everything medical.
The details of our journeys may be different, but there is a unique connection and relation to others that have walked the osteosarcoma path that is strong and comforting. As a community, we will Make It Better for people with osteosarcoma.
MIB Ambassadors are trained Agents who offer support, love and hope to each other; Warrior-to-Warrior, Father-to-Father, Mother-to-Mother, Sibling-to-Sibling. Our journeys will be different, but there is a connection between those who have walked the osteosarcoma path that is strong and comforting. Ambassadors support patients and families in active treatment through hospital visits, phone, email and text communication, gaming and MIB Swag Bags and Caregiver Go Bags.
Prayers, intentions and positive thoughts are so uplifting to many OsteoWarriors and their families. Prayer Agents lift any warrior, angel or family up with their prayers and intentions. Whether urgent or ongoing, Prayer Agents will be activated all over the world at your request and in particular on the first Sunday of every month when each name on The OsteoAngel & OsteoWarrior lists are read. Anyone can be a Prayer Agent regardless of faith tradition or spiritual practice. All are welcome.
Video Gaming is a wonderful way to have fun while in treatment. MIB Lead Gamer Agents are trained Ambassador Agents who game with survivors, warriors and current patients of osteosarcoma. OsteoWarriors who are out of treatment are paired with an OsteoWarrior who is in treatment. They battle together on the game and system [Xbox, PS] of their choice.
