Make tough times
A little easier

We are here to help make difficult times for families a little easier by providing financial support to families whose child is battling cancer.

Helping Where It’s Needed Most

It is our hope that a family afflicted by cancer, can put their energy into caring for their child, instead of struggling to pay bills or ordinary living expenses.

We’d love it if you’d help us to make this happen.

Upcoming Events

You can always support us by joining our non-profit events. Your support will contribute to helping families in crisis and help to give them hope.

Our Care Program

We’ve helped 522 families up-to-date with financial support of $470,463.

Our Mission

To provide financial support for families who are struggling to make ends meet because their child is battling cancer.
