Why Support the Island Kids Cancer Association?
A childhood cancer diagnosis can be a parent's worst moment. While the main focus and attention will be on the critically ill child, families will struggle amidst extreme additional stressors. The ability to put food on the table, fuel in the vehicle, not to mention mental health and wellness can be compromised, adding value and necessity to community support.
Through Island Kids Cancer Association, donors and partners have an opportunity to make a difference.
You can help sustain families, children and youth through the experience of childhood cancer, connecting them to the support they may need.
Enable families to have access to basic necessities that can be out of reach. This includes financial assistance for groceries and fuel, plus mental health and wellness opportunities.
Support helps to break down the isolation of childhood cancer, giving families opportunities to navigate care, gain support and move towards healing.
