They Fight, We Fight

Heroes come in all sizes and sometimes superheroes reside in the hearts of small children fighting big battles.

Every day, 43 children are diagnosed with cancer in the United States. Childhood cancer is both a life-threatening and life-changing diagnosis for families. Depending on the type of cancer, treatment may last from months to years. Post treatment, two-thirds of these children will suffer long-term side effects as a result of their treatment. The average cost of a stay in a hospital for a child with cancer is a staggering $40,000 per stay and most families spend an additional $10,000 annually in non-medical costs including gas, parking, and additional childcare.

The cost for families to fight childhood cancer is significant due to the cost itself as well as the length of cancer treatment. COVID has added significantly to the financial distress for childhood cancer families due to work furloughs and layoffs. With almost 900 children in cancer treatment in Arizona at any time, in conjunction with September being Childhood Cancer Awareness month, please join us in raising the much needed funds for gas cards, food cards, and basic needs for these Arizona families.

Children’s Cancer Network’s Pinwheels For Hope

Our goal is simply to raise $22,500 or more to provide at least $25 per family for gas, food or basic needs.  We invite you to partner with us by visiting our website and selecting one of the impactful donation choices and bring hope to Arizona families battling childhood cancer.

The pinwheels shown here represent the approximate 900 children in Arizona being treated for cancer.
