THE STORY:

Genre's Kids with Cancer Fund is an all-volunteer organization that helps every child diagnosed with cancer at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. We provide financial assistance and support to their families through our various outreach programs.

Genre (like Henry with a “G”) was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on Memorial Day, 2009.  He was 8 yrs. old and wanted to help other kids with cancer.  Genre completed his treatment in October 2012. He is cancer free. Our mission continues to help families living through childhood cancer.  We give gaming systems and games to 10-15 new children diagnosed with cancer each month. We provide Go Bags to their families, filled with supplies needed during their hospital stays. We offer gas cards, pay utility bills and mortgage payments, help during the holidays, provide groceries, and more.

This is how your money makes a difference:

$15  will pay for an iTunes gift card, so kids can download an app or song, to entertain them when they are in the hospital for days.

$20 will purchase a video game, providing hours of distraction for a kid in the hospital receiving chemotherapy or lengthy treatments.

$50 will buy a gas gift card, for oncology families who travel long distances, so their child can get medical care at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

$50 will pay for all of the items to complete a "Go Bag" we give to every oncology family when their child is admitted, and they hear the words "your child has cancer".

$120 will pay for a handheld gaming system or music player, we give to every child newly diagnosed with cancer at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, if they don't already own one. These are priceless to the children during long treatments or when they are hospitalized for weeks at a time.

Any amount will support our financial assistance program. We are raising money to help pediatric oncology families in need.
