Family Reach provides financial relief and heartfelt support to families fighting pediatric cancers and other life-threatening diseases.
While the majority of their efforts are dedicated to families fighting solid-tumor, pediatric-type cancers, they extend support to families with similar medical situations and urgent, unfulfilled needs.
The focus of their current efforts is to raise funds to help eligible families pay for a variety of significant expenses that mount during the patient’s treatment, including:
* Everyday home bills that accumulate due to lost wages of parents (e.g., mortgage, utilities, insurance, etc.)
* Transportation to care centers and lodging for family members
* Child care
* Palliative care
* Other special patient needs (medical or non-medical)
Their goal is to help over 1,000 families in the next 3-5 years.
