mya, 4 yrs old, was diagnosed with Wilms Tumor September 2010. 4 Y/O mya, baby sister and 21 Y/O Mom are soon to be homeless. JJCCF recently admitted this family into our Advocacy Program in hope that our community and collaborating agencies will help provide upcoming rent payments while mya is receiving cancer treatment. JJCCF’s Founder met with this family in early October 2010 to deliver hope, love, compassion and emergency financial assistance. JJCCF’s Financial Assistance Program prevented eviction by providing a check payable to “Emerald Bay Club” to cover family’s October rent. Additionally, JJCCF paid for an outpatient pharmacy bill payable to the Hospital. mya’s mom, was fired from her job soon after her daughter was diagnosed with cancer because she had to miss work in order to be at her daughter’s bedside. She worked at Accurate Services in the Customer Service Department. For the next couple of months while mya is receiving chemotherapy, radiation and operation(s) this family will need financial assistance to pay for their rent, grocery / gas gift cards and help to fix their car.
