#4. 122 Children Attended Camp! Camp Scholarship Program

Cancer often isolates children from their friends and the activities they love. The Camp Scholarship Program allows children in remission to reconnect with those friends and activities. The program provides funding for a camp of their choice; sports, music, art, science, horseback riding, skiing or whatever activities they missed most during treatment.

#2. 499 Families Received Financial Assistance! Helping Hands Fund Program

Families of children with cancer often face financial difficulties. Suddenly, household bills become overwhelming; utilities are in jeopardy of being shut-off or an eviction notice is received. The Helping Hands Fund provides emergency bridge payments directly to utility companies and landlords, ensuring that each child has a warm, safe place to call home while recovering from cancer.

#1. 16, 374 Children Received Bear-Able Gifts! Bear-Able Gift Program

The Foundation delivers gifts to thousands of children each year through the national Bear-Able Gifts Program. When the toys arrive at their destination, its then up to the social workers and child life specialists to see the toys are distributed.  Some hospitals give each child something when they come in for treatment.  Some children receive a special gift on their birthday.  Others will place toys in their play centers for all the children to enjoy.  The possibilities are endless and the smiles are contagious!

Wishing you a happy & healthy New Year!
Thank you for a wonderful 2015!
