Mission

Our charity's mission is to alleviate some of the financial burdens families face who have children suffering from cancer. Our sole purpose is to support these struggling families during a difficult time so that they can focus all of their attention on their child's treatment and recovery. Specifically, we help families with medical treatment and transportation expenses and family household bills (e.g. mortgage or rent, utility bills, car payments, insurance premiums and copays, groceries, clothing).

Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization primary goal is to secure consistent funding whilst reaching a large scope of families/children afflicted with cancer so we may be able to financially help more & more of those in need that apply for our assistance..

We are looking to become better known, we are not a household name but we hope to be one day!.. Our strategy is to outreach through social workers, word-of-mouth, advertising, & as much exposure that we can generate in order to become better known & thus establish donations & grants.

Right now, we have a handful of volunteers & no employees.. Our capabilities are limited but our intent is our strongest asset!
Hoping to expand our circle of supporters/volunteers to further enable our charity to reach the goals we have in mind...

We have accomplished much in the 19 years since the founding of the charity.. In those years we have financially or otherwise assisted dozens upon dozens of children with cancer & the families that are financially burdened from the diagnosis,, As mentioned above, what's next would be expanding our presence & securing more funding to reach the goals..
