The CFO holds two funds established by generous donors whose lives were touched by pediatric cancer.
Each fund can provide up to $1,000 in assistance for nonmedical expenses to families with children in cancer treatment. Additional information and links to the applications for both are below. Contact Bridget Dierks for more information.
