Our funds go directly towards patient grants. Our patients are people, like you and us, trying to take care of themselves and their families. Now, more than ever, they need our help. Our founding purpose was, and still remains true, to help patients and families with the 'collateral damage' they face in the wake of a blood and/or pediatric cancer diagnoses. Even if you don't want to walk, run, skip, or jump - you can still support a family by clicking here to make a donation to the Family Cancer Network. Thank you in advance from our grant recipients for your generosity!
