How is the money spent?

Educational Support

We purchase books about childhood cancer to help our families better understand their child's diagnosis; we purchase books about survivorship to help educate about long term follow up and care; and we purchase books to help with bereavement.

Financial Support

We help our families with such unexpected expenses as car repairs or their monthly obligations such as phone bills, car payments, rents & mortgages, when they cannot afford the payment or when the payment would put an undue hardship on the family budget. We want to help reduce the burden these families have because caring for a child with cancer is stressful enough.

Social Support

We provide the funds for many fun activities throughout the year such as family day at an amusement park, circus nights, a spring picnic and a winter holiday party, individual family outings by request, and doctor's office fun such as arts & crafts, birthday & holiday gifts, pizza parties, and more.

Can you believe?

100% of the funds donated are used for children and their families. Every penny you donate will reach the children. We have no overhead and no one receives a salary.
