A local nonprofit helps families of children with cancer

WILTON, CONN. (WTNH) — The founder of a nonprofit organization that supports families of children battling childhood cancer joined News 8 for an interview to share how they are helping members of the Connecticut community.

Liz Salguero, the founder of circle of care shared why work is important to him and how the nonprofit helps families in need.

The Circle of Care not only provides emotional and financial support to those who have a family member battling childhood cancer, but it also provides families with programs and services that meet the challenging needs of childhood cancer treatment.

Liz Salguero was inspired to start the charity when her son Carlos was diagnosed with cancer when he was just 2½ years old. Carlos went into remission when he was 5 years old and is now a healthy 23 year old man.

Carlos has very few memories of this experience, but he is very proud of the work his mother does to help other families of children with cancer. He even helps the association by volunteering with them.
