When a child is diagnosed with cancer, it affects the entire family. Expenses for medical treatment are often covered by insurance, however everyday home expenses are not. Families often have to give up or temporarily leave one job to care for their child. Additional expenses add up, including gas to transport the child to treatment and food purchases since many days are spent in a hospital or traveling for treatments. Families can also experience additional costs for their other children who may need extended child care services. All of these expenses can cause a financial burden on the family.
Through the Gabby’s Gift Program, families and social workers are able to apply to receive financial assistance, travel assistance, or request a wish list item for the child who is currently being treated for cancer.
Since this program began, we have been able to help many families with so many different needs. We have provided funds for gas, groceries, meals away from home, and clothing. We have paid rent, mortgages, car payments, and electric bills. We have also been able to give funds for general living expenses.
