Childhood Cancer Society
Every child deserves to be surrounded by the special love of family during illness. The reality of the situation is that not every family has the means to do so, especially if medical treatment takes them far away from home. Childhood Cancer Society (CCS) provides funds for medical care, accommodations, and travel expenses to make it possible for families in need to obtain the necessary care for their children and to be with them when out of town hospitalization and treatment is required.
Additionally CCS provides gifts to children with pediatric cancer. While children are naturally resilient, we believe that the occasional gift provides a positive state of mind and creates the optimal environment for the body to heal. Recipients of gifts are recommended to us via hospital social workers who keep an eye out for children who are in need of this kindness.
