While the holidays will be different for all of us this year, families facing cancer may have to give them up entirely.
What is Hope for the Holidays?
Helpless and hopeless are two words weighing heavy on all of us this year. But while the downs may be unavoidable, the magic doesn’t have to disappear completely.
Grounded in impact, filled with love, and elevated by community, our Hope for the Holidays program is your chance to be part of something greater. When cancer fails to recognize special occasions, families going through treatment cannot afford warm dinners, gifts, or winter clothes. This year, the additional financial hardships caused by COVID-19 are making celebrations feel even more out of reach.
You can be the silver lining that everyone needs right now. Thank you for joining us in making holiday celebrations possible for cancer patients across the country.
Jaidyn is a sweet, charismatic 10-year-old girl who was sadly diagnosed with sarcoma last year. She lives with her mom Jamika and two younger siblings. Jaidyn’s treatment plan requires her to be hospitalized every 21 days for chemotherapy, which means her mom has to be by her side. Between Jaidyn’s intense care and not having the funds to pay for childcare for her other children, Jamika has been unable to work.
This loss of income combined with out-of-pocket expenses, hospital visits, and everyday bills has left the family in a financial bind. Families like these don’t have the luxury of buying gifts or planning festivities with loved ones. When you support Hope for the Holidays, you bring joy to families like Jaidyn’s so they can experience the magic of the holiday season when they need it most.
