From the Director

The New Year has arrived and we are very excited for new opportunities and new partners. We are also extremely grateful for those who have provided and continue to provide much needed support over the years.


As we begin 2013, we have already given out 2 Family Care Kits with another one in the wings. Cancer seems to not care that the calendar has turned. We are so grateful for all of the many contributors, volunteers, and supporters who ensure that kids do not fight cancer alone.


Because of your 2012 support, forty-four families received a Family Comfort Care Kit full of information and resources. Because of you, nearly $40,000 in direct cash assistance provided families a financial safety net when they needed it most. And because of you, families were able to gather together and support each other in relaxed and fun settings and touch a bit of normalcy for awhile.


We hope you will join us on February 21st for our open house and see first-hand how you are making a difference in the lives of kids with cancer and their families.

Thank you to all the sponsors who made Christmas brighter for some very special children and families!


"Please thank them very much for their kind hearts.  It really let us focus on [our daughter's] needs knowing christmas is ok."


Another mom was in tears as she picked up her gifts and was so touched that "not only do I not have to shop, but they are also wrapped!"


A very special thank you to our coordinators Ella and Jana Major! You Rock!
