National Children's Cancer Society, Inc.

Rating: 3 stars   4 reviews

Issues: Health, Cancer

Location: One South Memorial Drive Suite 800 St. Louis MO 63102 USA

Mission: The National Children's Cancer Society seeks to improve a child's chance of surviving cancer by providing direct financial aid and emotional support to children with cancer and their families. We believe that children with cancer will receive the most consistent medical care when their parents can focus on them, rather than the additional burdens caused by cancer. Financial aid includes assistance with lodging, meals, long distance phone calls, transportation, child care, rent, mortgage, etc. Families are required only to show that they have financial need during their child's treatment, regardless of their ability to pay before the child's diagnosis.

NCCS has helped our family throughout my sons treatment for ALL by helping w/ gas money and money for food during inpatient treatments and illness stays in the hospital. Without their help I am not sure how we would have made it through the months that we spent the majority of our time in the hospital.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

through the help they have provided to my family by helping us w/ gas money and money for food for treatment stays in the hospital. They have been a God send especially when gas prices were near 5 dollars a gallon.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do as they are doing and help w/ extra costs incurred by cancer treatments.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how they are so eager to help, which makes our life a little less stressful.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

our personal worker, we speak to the same woman Chrsitine - every time.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help even more families with the financial struggles that come w/ having a child w/ cancer.

Ways to make it better...

don't feel that improvements are needed, they were quick to respond and very kind and helpful during interactions.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the current economic situation because people are less likely to donate when everyone is struggling right now.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I thank them for all of their help, I don't know where we would have been some months w/o their help.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
