Open Arms Meals

Through our Open Arms Meal program, CURE serves meals to hospitalized children with cancer and their families at Memorial Health Dwaine and Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital three times a week. These meals help alleviate the stress and cost of meals for family members during hospital stays. The expense of eating out or ordering food can be overwhelming to a family dealing with extensive medical bills. Additionally, children with cancer are often too sick or young to allow a parent to leave their hospital room to get a meal.

Your company, group, or family can help us meet the needs of families fighting cancer by providing a meal through our Open Arms Meal Program. A $200 donation will allow your company, group, or family to provide the comfort of good food to families fighting cancer.

PROVIDE A MEAL

We are also seeking restaurants to partner with CURE by donating lunch meals once a month. CURE staff will pick up the meals and deliver them to the families at the hospital. For more information, or to become a partner, please contact Allena Cox, [email protected].

“Having the Open Arms Meal Program was such a relief. It was one less thing I had to worry about and stress about. I knew I needed to eat. But some of those days your so exhausted and thinking about so many different things.”
