Review for Go4thegoal Foundation, Pennsauken, NJ, USA
As an pediatric oncology social worker, I have been along side families whose children are going through very difficult times. It goes without saying how difficult the treatment is on the child but I believe it is even more difficult on the parent for many reasons. Supporting their child during treatment is only part of the concern. With most families, one of the parents usually has to leave work to care for their child. This drop in income causes a great deal of financial hardship for the family. This hardship is doubled when it involves a single parent being the caregiver. One of my responsibilities is to seek out foundations who are able to support the family during this time.
This year, during the holiday season, I supported many newly diagnosed families who were so anxious about not being able to provide a Christmas for their family. I submitted a referral to Go 4 the Goal for one family. I did remind the family of the fact I was not sure how much of the child's wish list could be fulfilled by G4TG. The family stated they would be grateful for any assistance they would receive.
On the day of the delivery, when I called the parents in to my office, the Mom began to cry and Dad did his best not to join her. They took everything out of the bags and were so excited showing each other the items. They looked like children opening gifts on Christmas morning. They could not say thank you enough and I reminded them it was not me, but G4TG, who is giving their children a Christmas.
I feel so blessed to be the conduit for such a wonderful foundation. They never hold back and they're giving far exceeds anything any one would or should expect.
I am thanking you, not only from me but for my families. Wishing you all the best in the coming year!
