How We Help


HOW YOUR DONATION MAKES AN IMPACT

Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children (ACFC) is committed to children with cancer and their families, right here in Arizona. Our mission is to provide social,
emotional and financial support for families managing the health and well being of a loved one with pediatric cancer. ACFC provides practical support to local
families by offering:



Assistance Program

A child undergoing cancer treatment spends days, weeks, sometimes months in the hospital, and the overall expense of having a child with cancer is often too much for families to handle. ACFC assists families with travel, medical, rent, and other expenses associated with, and impacted by, their child's cancer diagnosis. Typical assistance is $500-$2,000.

Cancer Concierge

Traveling with a child that has cancer can be overwhelming. The goal of our Cancer Concierge is to eliminate caregiver stress by providing a coordinated lodging and transportation plan for in-state and out-of-state travel.

Sunshine Pack

Every child assisted through our programs receives our signature Sunshine Pack which includes comforting items such as a blanket, books, small games, art supplies, and more.

Four Paws for Healing

A visit from a four pawed & tail wagging friend is often the best medicine. ACFC’s therapy dog, Leo, and his furry friends offer in-home visits for our patients and their family. Our therapy dogs have a magical way of putting everyone at ease- children and caregivers while providing a much needed break.
