We can all agree that 2020 has been a year like no other. For the families we serve, the challenges have been intense. Navigating a childhood cancer diagnosis, treatment, or relapse in the midst of a pandemic has been extraordinarily difficult. Only one parent or caregiver is allowed to stay with a hospitalized child. Families have lost income with layoffs and furloughs while the financial burdens of treatment (including travel expenses and lodging) have mounted. The emotional stress, which is difficult enough in the best of times, has been exacerbated. Families need CURE now more than ever.
I know tragedy is a part of our world and won’t end when 2021 starts in a few days, but I do believe brighter days are coming. Will you help us bring a brighter day to children with cancer and their families? Your tax-deductible gift will allow us to continue to provide meaningful and tangible support to those who desperately need it, as well as fund life-saving research.
Thank you for your generosity and I hope to see you face to face early in the new year!
