Colorectal cancer is the Number #2 cancer killer of both men and women and this disease greatly affects everyone in a family. The children of colon cancer patients endure a lot; one of their parents is most likely off work – on medical disability, and their family’s finances may be strained.  Many children have OR will lose a parent to this disease during their young and impressionable lives. The Gloria Borges WunderGlo Foundation wants these children to know that we care.

Although we are a colon cancer organization with a Mission to Support research for “The Cure”, we have built “The Children of WunderGlo” programming because we want to do our part in helping these children attain the necessary building blocks to reach their own personal successes.  We want these children to know that The Gloria Borges WunderGlo Foundation cares about their future.


New research shows that 18 percent of newly diagnosed cancer patients are parents to one or more minor children. Of these patients, nearly a third of them are caring for children under the age of six.

This means that 2.85 million children in the United States are living with a parent who is battling or has survived cancer.
