Double Your Impact for Families in Need

In this time of unprecedented crisis in our country, children with cancer are among the most vulnerable. Cancer treatments destroy their immune systems, making it impossible to fight off most any virus, much less the novel COVID-19. As a result, the families we serve are being impacted by this crisis in extremely difficult ways. But our amazing community is coming together to help.

Through a special $100,000 matching gift, your donation through May 31, 2020 will be matched and have double the impact.

In the last week we’ve seen parents facing new challenges, and reaching out for CURE’s help more than ever:
  • Parents working in high risk environments like hospitals, restaurants, grocery stores as well as heavily impacted industries including airlines and retailers are losing their jobs, having to resign, or take leave to protect their vulnerable child. Now in addition to the stress associated with caring for a very sick child many are unsure how they will pay their bills. CURE is addressing these emergency financial needs by paying for housing, food, utilities, medical bills, and other basic expenses.
  • In the current situation, many caregivers will not leave their child’s room for fear of potential infection. Getting meals safely has become difficult and expensive. CURE is delivering boxed meals, snack bags, and other food as parents isolate with their child in hospital rooms.
  • Due to hospital restrictions, parents are now faced with a choice of which parent will stay with their sick child, separating the other parent and siblings. CURE is making our counseling program easier to access through telemental health sessions through an internet connection. CURE is also covering the cost of all sessions, waiving co-pays and session limits, so all of our families have access to this service through this COVID-19 crisis.
  • Families come from far away to seek cancer treatment at the facilities CURE serves. After bone marrow treatment, these children would usually transition with their families to lodging nearby. Those facilities have had to close. CURE is responding to this unique situation by covering the cost of hotel lodging for families until they are well enough to go home – often weeks.
In short, families faced with a childhood cancer diagnosis have just been dealt another devastating blow in this crisis. But CURE is here to help and you can, too. Through this $100,000 matching-gift challenge from a generous donor, all gifts we receive through May 31, 2020 to support our families will double, dollar for dollar up to $100,000.
Your support, at any level, matters now more than ever.
