A sick child is a terrible thing, a child with cancer is devastating, not only for the child but for the whole family. The emotional, physical and financial stresses can seem overwhelming, and positive events are rare.
Families who have to look after a young child with cancer find it increasingly difficult to entertain their children with special events to help them forget about their treatments while also giving them something to look forward to.
They may also not have the finances to provide the environment their sick child needs in order to recover from devastating treatments.
Kids Cancer Research Trust can provide direct financial assistance to families to help with the burdens associated with cancer, to help the kids get treatment, make their home environment more suitable or simply forget about the cancer for a short time.
