Family Assistance for July 2014.…. It is because of your generosity and continued support that we were able to financially assist 4 families last month totaling just over $3,100 and we have provided over $29,000 of financial assistance to our families so far this year. Our assistance varies each month depending on our families request. we feel it is important to help out the family or families with whatever their specific need is at the time. Although we work directly with the Resource specialists at Boston Children's Hospital / The Jimmy Fund Clinic and Hasbro Children's Hospital, we also get applications from people that have learned of us online through the DIPG Registry, Social Media as well as Social Workers and Resources Specialists from other hospitals. Last month we helped a 7 year old little girl's family from Texas with a Walmart gas & food gift card. A 4 yr old's family from West Springfield, MA with their rent and Mobil gas & stop n shop gift cards (Jimmy Fund Clinic) An 18 yr old young lady battling a GBM from CT who we have purchased her dorm room wish list stuff for her as she heads off to college despite her diagnosis of a brain tumor (so brave) We have also assisted a 4 yr old boy's family with a rent payment. He is from FL battling DIPG. We were contacted by the families social worker at their hospital. Childhood Brain Cancer is devasting and help is always needed for families who are battling. They deserve to spend every single minute being with their precious child and not having to worry about day to day bills piling up. We can't thank you all enough for helping us help others. You can learn a little more about our children by visiting our photo gallery tab on our website - we have a photo album dedicated to our brave warrior! s. JUST A REMINDER ...
