Compassionate Care Family Care Grants
Most children diagnosed with cancer undergo a three year regimen that strains their family's resources. Social workers on campus refer families who are struggling to meet the demands of co-pays, medications, transportation and even food and clothing. Compassionate Care Family Grants provide limited but necessary support to bridge difficult times.
