Heart-2-Heart Bereaved Support
We believe the lost of a life has a deep impact on the family as whole. Many times when a child becomes sick, siblings are shuffled off to family or friends, as their parents dedicate majority of their time caring for the sick child. Once a child passes away, the family often finds it even more difficult to rebuild from the impact of the loss.
Through our Heart-2-Heart program, we hope to encourage families to regain strength, and heal through reconnecting with other families who can relate by attending our unique family events.
Making Memories Celebrations
The Making Memories program grants end-of-treatment celebrations and birthday parties to terminally and critically ill children between the ages of 1 and 18 years of age.
Helping Hands Financial Assistance
The average cost of a hospital stay for a child fighting cancer is $40,000. Caring for these children not only places an emotional burden on a family, but often times a financial burden as well. Majority of the parents reduce their work hours, or completely quit working to care for a sick child.
Through our Helping Hands program we grant financial assistance to the families of children currently undergoing treatment for sickness.
Remember Me Always Research Fund
1 in 285 children will be diagnosed with cancer and only 4% of Federal Cancer Research Funding goes to pediatric cancer. Seeing as how cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease among children, it is clear that more awareness needs to be given.
Through our Remember Me Always Program we provide information and support for children and their families that are affected by pediatric cancer. Our goal is that through funds raised we can promote advocacy and awareness, and to support research leading to a cure for all children diagnosed with this life-threatening disease.
Bundles of Hope
Bundles of Hope mission is to provide emotional support by bringing smiles to the faces of kids battling cancer. We accomplish this by sending toy packages to children who are in active treatment. We also include siblings who are fighting along side the diagnosed child by providing them with toys as well because we know this disease has an impact on the entire family.
Lexi's Wigs of 40
This program will provide children battling cancer with a wig at no cost (wigs range from $30 for a synthetic one to $200-$1,000+ for a human hair wig). Anyone who has a wig to donate can send it to our office from anywhere in the country. We will then go through a cleaning process and mail it to the recipient child, wherever he or she lives (within the country).
