When a loved one is in the hospital, a family's expenses extend beyond the cost of treatment alone. The additional costs of travel, daycare, food, lodging, and parking, just to name a few, are many of the day-to-day expenses associated with treatment. Frequently, parents find it necessary to take time off from work to focus fully on their child's care, cutting off a valuable source of income when the family needs it most.
Our goal is to help these families monetarily, so they can focus their efforts on supporting their loved one.
