Our Mission

It is our mission to lift some of the financial burden faced by the families of Childhood Cancer patients, so they can concentrate on their child during this difficult time.

There are a number of non-medical costs that families incur that often go overlooked. These costs may include, daycare for siblings, travel expenses to and from the hospital and loss of wages by parents who must quit their jobs to care for their child.

 

We work with donation coordinators, social workers and staff from the pediatric oncology departments at children's hospitals and clinics across the nation to identify families in need of financial assistance, and with your help we provide resources to make caring for their loved one a little less stressful.

We provide the following: 

  • Assistance with medical bills.

  • Assistance with utility bills for a family facing disconnection.

  • Accommodations for out-of-town patients at St. Jude's Clinic, including transportation to treatment facilities, food, and supplies, so families can stay together during treatments.

  • Chemo care bags (which include chemo ducks, toys, arts and crafts, headbands, and other necessities).

  • Holiday gift bags (Santa Comes to Town).

  • Back-to-school backpacks and school supplies.
