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.
