Mission: The organization's mission is to make a difference in the lives of children affected by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. We strive to improve the quality of life and well-being for them and their families by offering financial support for daily living needs.
Programs: Financial assistance for transportation to and from treatment centers; non-covered medical and prescription expenses; rent or mortgage payments; auto payments and maintenance; gift cards for food, gas and clothing; daily living expenses such as phone, water and electric, rehabilitative needs; individual and/or family counseling and holiday necessities.
As noted on our website, http://www.celebritiesforekids.org, we have been providing financial aid to local kids battling cancer and other life-altering/ threatening illnesses for more than 15 years.
We fund the things not covered by insurance like a wheelchair ramp, a handicapped-accessible bathroom, food, repairs to a vehicle, even gasoline to get to doctor's appointments. Our support has helped more than 600 families ease the financial hardship that accompanies a catastrophic illness.
