Kids of Childhood Cancer Foundation supports families going through treatment at Brenner Children’s Hospital Pediatric Oncology Ward, to ease the Childhood Cancer Journey, to make the hospital stays more comfortable.
We provide financial support – including small household bills, medical bills, food, gas cards, clothes, and toys. We hold events for the children, such as Ice Cream Parties, Polar Express parties, and LEGO Therapy Night.
We send families in North Carolina on respite vacations to our Safe Haven Beach Condo on Topsail Island, to escape from their harsh reality. We provide support for whatever is needed on an individual basis.
