HOW TO HELP

THE MOMENT IS UNIMAGINABLE. THE NEED IS GREAT.

Approximately 50 new families will face a childhood cancer diagnosis every year at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC. These families’ worlds have been turned upside down – emotionally, physically and financially. There are also 50+ families who have been fighting for over 18 months. Their sick child has likely endured months of treatment, possible remission, only to be followed by potential disease relapse.

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, CLAIRE’S ARMY WANTS TO:

  • Provide each of the newly diagnosed families with a Claire Package. This useful utility tote will contain essentials such as towels, a bath mat, room disinfectant, plastic utensils, dishwashing liquid, dryer sheets, and a journal.
  • Offer parents ways to celebrate significant times of the year – purchase Christmas trees and decorations for hospital rooms as well as families’ homes and provide personalized gifts and cards to make birthdays and positive test results extra special.
  • Offset families’ financial strain by providing grocery store, pharmacy, gasoline and restaurant gift cards.
  • Deliver meals to the patient and family in the hospital as well as parents and siblings who are at home.
