A cancer diagnosis is an isolating experience for both the patient and their family.  Suddenly, you no longer share the same everyday occurrences as your friends, peers, co-workers and extended family. School aged patients spend so much time in the hospital and possibly traveling for treatment that their daily activities are vastly different from their friends.  Parents are no longer worried about packing lunches, scheduling extra-curricular activities or which neighbor has the best looking grass. Suddenly you are trying to navigate your way through unknown territory without Google Maps and you feel isolated, like you are living in a cave, alone.

If you would like to be paired with an Ambassador Agent, please complete the form below and we will contact you.

If you are a seasoned osteosarcoma family and would like to be trained to give others the hope and support you had or wish you had – please contact Liz (Liz@MIBagents.org) and Casey (Casey@MIBagents.org).

The MIB Ambassador Agents program was created to be a face-to-face connection for patients and caregivers to the osteosarcoma world.  We are a group of experienced osteosarcoma families and patients that are dedicated to supporting patients, parents, caregivers, siblings, extended family and friends of people with osteosarcoma. The goal of this group is to leverage our experiences with this terrible disease to help Make It Better for patients and their families dealing with an osteosarcoma diagnosis. As Ambassadors, we are here to listen and provide hope and understanding. We will be the safe ears and shoulders to help support anyone walking through this diagnosis. We know the disease and we have walked similar paths; however, we are not emotionally involved in the same way your family and friends are that sometimes makes it difficult to bear your heart to them as they are struggling too. We would like to make a hospital visit so that we can meet and bring you one of our totally awesome Warrior Swag Bags and our Caregiver Go Bags. Each tote is filled with all of the essential must-haves while staying in the hospital and of course MIB swag. Each of these bags has been created and filled by fellow OsteoFamilies because we have been where you are. We can also connect by phone, email and direct messaging. 

Please email us to schedule a visit: Liz@MIBagents.org
