Family Assistance for June 2014.…. It is because of your generosity and continued support that we were able to financially assist 6 families last month totaling just over $4,200 and we have provided over $26,000 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 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 hosptials. Last month we helped a 7 year old little girl's family from Texas with a Walmart gas & food gift card. We helped a 5 yr old boy's family from NH with a car payment (Jimmy Fund Clinic). A 4 yr old's family from West Springfield, MA with their rent. (Jimmy Fund Clinic) A 12 yr old little girl, another family from the Jimmy Fund Clinic with their mortgage payment. A little 7 yr old boy's family from New Bedford with a market basket gift card and utility bill.(Jimmy Fund Clinic) We were also able to help a family with rent, they were referred to us by a social worker at Children's Hospital South Texas. Sadly this young man lost his courageous battle with brain cancer. Unfortunately many of the children that we have assisted have already earned their angel wings. Childhood Brain Cancer is devastating 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.
