About Cancer Families United
Pediatric cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease in children.
Each day, 43 children are diagnosed and one in eight will not survive their disease. In the past 20 years, only three drugs have been developed specifically to treat pediatric cancer; all other treatments are derived from adult drugs. The circumstances surrounding the treatment for pediatric cancer are extremely difficult, and families face numerous challenges and hardships. Cancer Families United provides unique support and alleviates some of the burden.
Our mission is to provide essential support and services to families affected by childhood cancer through family networking, community awareness, financial assistance and advocacy for a cure.
We provide every child and their family with a Family Care Bag at the time of diagnosis. The bag is filled with items that cannot be obtained during a hospital stay. We provide the caregiver with items of comfort and nourishment as well as gifts for the patient to keep them happy. The staff at Bronson Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic deliver the bags and assist the family in filling out our application for financial assistance.
Our financial assistance programs are Travel Assistance, Family Wish and Warrior Wish. Families can apply for gas cards to alleviate the financial burden of traveling to the hospital for treatment. They can also apply for a Family Wish – something that would help the patient but that the family could not afford. For those kids who relapse, we offer Warrior Wish – a personalized gift or mini adventure for a patient that has to face cancer treatment a second time.
The organization also advocates in Washington D. C. and participates in national pediatric awareness campaigns and events.
All money donated to Cancer Families United directly impacts local southwest Michigan families and children affected by pediatric cancer as well as helps to support the efforts to advance cures through increased awareness and advocacy!Terms and Conditions
