HOW TO HELP

Approximately 200 new families will face a childhood cancer diagnosis every year in Charlotte, NC between Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital and Levine Children’s Hospital. These families’ worlds have been turned upside down – emotionally, physically and financially. There are also 75+ 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 WILL:

  • Provide each of the newly diagnosed families in Charlotte with a Claire Package. This useful utility tote will contain essentials such as towels, a bath mat, room disinfectant, plastic utensils, dishwashing liquid, a journal, and more.
  • Deliver custom ordered dinners 4 nights per week to the patient and family at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital as well as parents and siblings who are visiting.
  • Pay bills on behalf of families who are suffering financially due to rigorous treatment schedules from Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital.  These include but are not limited to mortgage/rent payments, utilities, travel needs, and car insurance.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Donate The most immediate impact you can make with these families is to donate now. Your tax-deductible contributions will make a difference. We cannot do this without you.
