The Support for Brain Cancer Foundation is a non-profit organization to help families that have a child (under the age of 18) undergoing treatment for Brain Cancer and/or Brain Tumors. The charity foundation has dedicated goals to give grants to families that have a child diagnosed with a form of Neurological Cancer and/or tumors that are experiencing financial hardship as a direct result of their child’s diagnosis and treatment.
Additionally, we are supporting Rady Children’s Hospital to contribute 15% of all donations to the Neuro-Oncology Research Department to further the study for treatments of pediatric neurological cancers.
We set out to start this charity after a close friend’s three-year-old daughter, Emma (pictured above), was diagnosed with stage 4 Medulloblastoma on February 23, 2018, a form of brain cancer that develops tumors in the brain. She immediately received treatment at Rady Children’s Hospital including surgery and chemo therapy.
As we all know the cost of medical bills when a child is hospitalized or undergoes surgery can be overwhelming yet there are other financial hardships the families face.
As a family’s world may seem to stop when their child is diagnosed this does not mean that their normal financial responsibilities do.
Parents will likely need to take extensive time off work to be with their child in the hospital and at home often resulting in a reduced household income. You can help us today by donating to this very meaningful cause. We are a registered 501(c)(3) and will put your donation to good use helping out a family in need.
You can make a difference...
Just imagine making a significant difference in the lives of a family that's going through such a difficult time. You could be the reason they hang on, the reason they power through. Though you should always consult with a tax professional, your donation could be considered a tax write-off.
