BENEFITING: THE CHILDRENS TREEHOUSE FOUNDATION
According to the American Cancer Society, 1,665,540 adults will be diagnosed with cancer in 2014. That is sad enough, but even more compelling, they have 749,000 children who must deal with their confusion, sadness, anger, sense of isolation and mis-communications. Our non-profit 501-c-3 organaization provides cancer centers and cancer hospitals with a unique psychosocial intervention program to assuage those emotions of the children. CLIMB is currently provided at more than 80 cancer centers in the USA and internationally. Our goal, by providing scholarships and start-up funding to cancer-hospital based nurses and social workers, is to double this reach during the next three years. This requires a fund raising effort of $210,000 for the next three years.
