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. Because of you, we can provide the financial assistance needed to ensure a child with cancer gets the treatment they need – whether it is across town or across the country
Because no family should go through childhood cancer alone.™
Watch our video to learn how your donation to the NCCS can help alleviate some of the financial obstacles of childhood cancer.
Meet some of the kids we’ve helped throughout the years. We’re sure they will inspire you – just as they inspire us every day!
Julia was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma (cancer of the eye) at just 18 months old. The best place for her treatment was at a hospital in New York that specialized in her disease. Thanks to support from our donors, the NCCS made sure Julie got to every appointment.
“The NCCS has helped to ease some of our travel costs… saying that you isn’t enough as we cannot even express in words our gratitude,” said Julia’s mom.
