Helping Hands Fund
Families of children with cancer often face financial difficulties. Along with the increasing medical bills, utility bills and rent payments are piling up at home. The CCRF Helping Hands Fund provides financial relief to these families by sending emergency bridge payments directly to the utility companies and landlords. This ensures that each child has a warm, safe place to call home while recovering from cancer.
The Helping Hands Fund works directly with your social worker or child life specialist. Social workers can request an application for a family whose child is currently receiving treatment for their cancer diagnosis. Once the application is received, the social worker will work with the family to complete the application and include all additional documentation needed. Each application is reviewed on a case by case basis.
