Grants- Families that qualify are awarded grants to help with the financial burden cancer places on nearly every family. We typically Follow a family through their treatment plan and award multiple grants when we see a need.
Support - Sometimes we just need to know that the way we are feeling is normal. Talking to another family that has gone through something very similar can help. Each type of cancer and stage brings different treatment. We connect families with others that have gone through, or are going through, a similar treatment plan.
Raising Money- We help families set up pages on Facebook, Go Fund Me, other forms of social media, and crowd funding.
Fundraisers- We help families plan fundraisers. We can utilize our non-profit status and receive donations on behalf of cancer families.
Coping- Grieving is a normal response to a loss. The loss can include the loss of your previously healthy child, the loss of your normal daily routine, the impact of the diagnosis on other family members, and the financial impact of the diagnosis. The grieving process varies from person to person in terms of the order in which one experiences the stages of grief, as well as the time it takes to go through the grief process. We are a shoulder to lean on through every step.
Other Resources Available- Many families end up in hospitals far away from home. Family members might need travel money or a place to stay. Many family members need help covering the mortgage or rent on their home while they spend time with their child. Some families need meals for themselves or other family that is still at home. Each type of cancer is different and so are the resources. Many non-profits offer grants for specific types of cancer.We notify families on the resources that are available.
