Childhood Cancer Families

This project is something near and dear to our hearts. Our goal is to raise money to assist otherr families going through what my family went through last year. Our 3 year old girl was diagnosed with Wilms' Tumors in her right kidney. There are a few different things that hit you as a parent going through this.

1) The emotional toll of getting the diagnosis
2) The physical toll on both you as well as your baby that is feeling the effects of the chemotherapy
3) The crushing financial weight that you must endure.

The third effect is one that we can assist with, easing the stressors that cause most divorces in these cases, as well as lowering the 62% of parents that go bankrupt. The hospital bills are pilling up, but there are also the daily costs that are unforseen: fuel to get to and from the hospital, eating at the hospital, the time away from you child in order to ensure that you can make your ends meet and make sure that your health insurance continues.

This charity is only one of two like it, and it is a very important aspect of the experience of cancer...

Help when you can, and I hope to rally as much support as I possibly can.
