How We Help


WE MEET THE NEEDS OF

CHILDREN FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES

Chrisie, ACFC founder, knows firsthand the experience of having a child diagnosed with cancer, traveling for treatment, living in a hospital, receiving news of remission, relapse and the reality of fatality. She has turned her firsthand experiences into specialized programs that meet the true needs of families battling pediatric cancer. Our programs empower families by ensuring they have a secure place to live, access to medical treatment and support tailored to their individual needs.




OUR PROGRAMS

ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

Cancer does not wait for a convenient time to disrupt lives. That is why we provide the much needed economic support families need to cover expenses associated with a child's cancer diagnosis. We cover rent, medical bills, and day-to-day expenses giving parents the critical time they deserve to focus on nothing but taking care of their sick child.

CANCER CONCIERGE

Our Cancer Concierge program gets children and teens with cancer where they need to be. It is our commitment and promise to coordinate lodging and transportation in-state or out-of-state for children to receive the treatment they NEED. Allowing no room for regret in families' hearts, our program provides the necessary resources and services for families to explore treatment options across the nation.

FOUR PAWS FOR HEALING

A visit from a four-pawed, tail-wagging friend is often the best medicine. Our therapy program provides in-home visits from our certified therapy dog, Leo, and his furry volunteer friends. A visit from one of our trained K9's provides medical and emotional benefits. Each visit empowers children with cancer and their family members with a sense of companionship, confidence and comfort.

SUNSHINE PACK

Every child assisted receives our signature Sunshine Packs. Our signature packs are filled with items to provide comfort and fun while undergoing treatment. Items include but are not limited to blankets, toys, arts & crafts, games, books, gift cards and more.

END OF LIFE SUPPORT

Losing a child to cancer is a devastating reality some families are forced to face. Our End-of-Life program helps families navigate through the dark by providing emotional support as well as financial assistance for funeral services and end of life expenses.
