BENEFITING: CureSearch for Children’s Cancer
Over 40,000 children endure cancer treatment each year. Beyond fighting just the disease, parents who should be focusing on helping their child heal are often fighting overwhelming medical bills as well. The average out-of-pocket cost for a family with a child battling cancer is over $9,700. In addition to the cost of treatment, the hidden costs of: food, transportation, and lodging often add to the financial burden. When children are sick, as adults we feel powerless. We wonder, “What can I do to help?”
I am raising funds to support UCSF lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children, and I need your support to help me reach my fundraising goal for the kids of UCSF.
Thanks to donors like you, no family ever pays UCSF for anything. UCSF will continue to improve the treatment of childhood cancer and other deadly diseases through its groundbreaking research.
