Hardship Assistance

Our Hardship Assistance Program is aimed at providing financial relief to families in our area that have a child with cancer.  One of the many tragedies that childhood cancer brings is that parents are often forced to give up their full-time work in lieu of the daily demands of treatment. Unfortunately, this leaves little to no income for basic needs like mortgage/rent, electricity and food.  We believe that no parent should have to count pennies to afford the travel expenses to get their child to his/her cancer treatments – or worry about having a home to return to when they are discharged.   This is why we created our Hardship Assistance Program.  Our aim is to assist families with basic expenses to afford them the opportunity to focus on the health and well-being of their child.
