HOW WE HELP
Every patient and his/her family facing a childhood cancer diagnosis at Novant Health: Hemby Children’s Hospital and Atrium Health: Levine Children’s receives a Claire Package to make their hospital stay more comfortable. This useful utility tote contains essentials such as towels, a bath mat, room disinfectant, plastic utensils, dishwashing liquid, a journal, grocery/gasoline gift cards and more.
Thanks to the generous support of local restaurants and dedicated volunteers, we deliver made-to-order meals to every pediatric oncology patient and his/her family in treatment at Novant Health: Hemby Children’s Hospital and Atrium Health: Levine Children’s. This not only offsets a financial burden for parents but removes another to-do from the long list and fosters family time.
We pay bills on behalf of families who are suffering financially due to rigorous treatment schedules. These include but are not limited to mortgage/rent payments, utilities, travel needs, and funeral expenses. In many cases, one or both parents must stop working to care for their sick child and we hope to eliminate as much stress as possible for these families.
Disclaimer: Claire’s Army does not accept direct requests for assistance. In an effort to be good stewards of the resources our donors have entrusted to us, Claire’s Army works through hospital oncology social workers and affiliated professionals, who are in the best position to determine eligibility and need on a case by case basis. At this time, Claire’s Army is primarily focused on childhood cancer families receiving treatment at the St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health: Hemby Children Hospital (where Claire was treated) and Atrium Health: Levine Children’s.
SERVE FAMILIES. LOVE KIDS. FIGHT CANCER.
