What is Hope for the Holidays?

No family should have to choose between their health and their home — especially when the holiday season draws us to the warmth of our loved ones and the comforts of a home.

And yet when cancer enters the family, patients and caregivers are unable to afford essential bills like housing payments, childcare, and groceries on top of the many costs of cancer. For those diagnosed during the pandemic when personal financial devastation hit many, the weight of these money decisions is even heavier.

Family Reach has helped families overcome financial barriers like these for 25 years. Donate to Hope for the Holidays 2021 to help cancer patients across the country stay secure in their homes and focus on healing.

Lucca (MA)

Support families like Lucca’s

Corina and Ricardo were only months into parenthood when they received the news that their son Lucca was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma. This means Corina won’t be able to return to her job any time soon, and while Ricardo continues to work, he has taken a significant amount of time off to help care for Lucca.

This loss of income combined with increased out-of-pocket expenses and hardships due to the pandemic adds financial worries to the unimaginable stress of having a baby with cancer. For this growing family, the holiday support they receive will give them the financial flexibility to celebrate — including Lucca’s birthday on December 27!

Join us in Hope for the Holidays giving so families like Lucca’s can experience the magic of the season when they need it most.

Jeremy, age 24, North Dakota

Jeremy, age 24, North Dakota

Jeremy is a young adult cancer hero from North Dakota who lives with his significant other and their young daughter. Diagnosed with lymphoma in February, Jeremy is going through treatment again after a recent relapse and is unable to work. Losing half of their income combined with the many costs of cancer quickly became a source of stress for the family. Jeremy continues to put his daughter first and he worries that the financial stressors from his diagnosis will prevent him from providing for his daughter like he wants to.

Aaliyah, age 16, Wisconsin

Aaliyah, age 16, Wisconsin

Aaliyah is a sweet teenager who was diagnosed with stage IV Ewing’s sarcoma. Due to the all-demanding physical and emotional nature of cancer, Aaliyah is unable to attend school right now and her mom stopped working in order to care for Aaliyah and her younger brother. With this unexpected loss of income, Aaliyah’s family moved in with her grandparents because her mom was worried that she wouldn’t be able to keep up with the bills and they would end up homeless.

Hacel, age 4, Maryland

Hacel, age 4, Maryland

Sandra and her 4-year-old daughter Hacel have been on a cancer journey together since October 2020 when Hacel was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Sandra is the sole provider and caregiver for Hacel, and she had to leave her full-time job in order to manage her daughter’s treatment schedule. Hacel was recently admitted to hospice for end-of-life care. Faced with news no parent wants to hear, Sandra’s focus is now spending as much time with her young daughter as possible.
