Support families like these:
Argii, age 6, Tennessee
When young Argii was diagnosed with brain cancer, he lost his eyesight from the tumor and has since braved various treatments and surgeries. His parents were both working before his diagnosis, but his mom quit her job now that Argii needs a 24/7 caregiver. Argii’s dad continues to work as much as possible while still being there for his son and family.
Argii’s social worker shared that “the financial support will help his family catch up on household bills, buy gifts, and splurge on holiday meal items.”
Kevin, age 15, Texas
For teenage Kevin and his three brothers, “home for the holidays” means a hotel near the hospital where Kevin gets his chemotherapy infusions. They’re staying there with their mom and grandma, who retired to help support them during treatment.
Kevin’s dad sadly passed away last year, and his mom had to stop working when she relocated her family closer to the hospital. Her son’s health is always on her mind, but now she also worries about affording the hotel stay, winter clothing, and food for her growing sons.
Antoinette, age 40, Indiana
Reflecting on last year, Antoinette shared, “I was going through breast cancer treatment, my child’s father was severely injured, and I was left with the burden of affording rent, bills, and all the necessities for my four children. I had to make big sacrifices to make sure we didn’t become homeless or hungry.”
With extra financial help during the holidays, Antoinette didn’t have to say no to her kids’ wishes or miss out on her favorite holiday moments. This year, she shared, “Thank you again for the assistance! I’m still dealing with some health concerns, but I’m alive, I’m happy, and my kids have their mom.”
