Anxiety. The loss of control. The fear that every germ might post a serious medical threat. That is the reality immediately after a parent hears the words “Your child has cancer.” Add on the burden of lost wages. Those are the shoes of families facing pediatric cancer since the day that diagnosis came.
P.U.N.T. Pediatric Cancer Collaborative’s “Helping Hands” program meets the most critical needs of WNY families whose children are fighting through providing assistance with direct payment of essential household expenses: rents, mortgages, auto loans, utility and medical bills, gas and groceries and more.
Now you can “Walk a Mile in their Shoes” and help raise funds for pediatric cancer families right here in your community. Walk a mile between now and July 6 for one of the most difficult shoes a family can ever have to wear. Sign up here: www.classy.org/campaign/walk-a-mile-in-their-shoes/c340896.
