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.
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!
Hazel was just two years old when diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Hazel and her mom or dad made the over 200 mile trip to the hospital a minimum of twice a month for treatment. Their travel costs added up quickly. Thankfully, the NCCS stepped in to provide financial support for the journeys to and from the hospital.
