Circle of Care was started by three moms who met during their children’s own battle with pediatric cancer. They wanted to share what they had learned and help those just beginning this journey.

In July of 2003, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit foundation was formed under the sponsorship of the Connecticut Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Foundation for Children, Inc. and Circle of Care was born.
