Every single day more than 40 children are diagnosed with cancer and families’ lives are turned upside down. When parents are faced with the overwhelming stress of having a child with cancer, they need to put everything aside and focus on getting the best possible treatment to save their child’s life.
The average cost of treating childhood cancer is a staggering $833,000. It would be impossible for any parent to prepare for the emotional and financial toll childhood cancer takes on a family. But we’re here to help… NO MATTER WHAT. Whether it is across town or across the country, because of you we can provide the financial assistance to travel to lifesaving treatment.
Watch our video to learn how your donation to the NCCS can help alleviate some of the financial obstacles of childhood cancer.
Chance’s grandmother recalled the moment she knew something was wrong… “It was just like an overnight thing. One day it wasn’t there, and the next day it was.”
Chance’s treatment plan started immediately after he was diagnosed. It required countless inpatient and outpatient stays at the hospital which put a financial strain on his family. Without your support, the NCCS could not continue helping kids like Chance get the treatment they need to survive. Thanks to you, no family faces childhood cancer alone.
The Beyond the Cure Ambassador Scholarship Program awards college scholarships to childhood cancer survivors who have demonstrated the ability to overcome the difficult challenges of cancer with determination and motivation. Forty (40) $3,500 scholarships will be awarded each academic year.
