Family Reach – for families affected by cancer

A child’s cancer diagnosis is emotionally devastating. It also takes a financial toll on families: Household income tends to drop dramatically as working parents turn into caregivers. Medical bills pile up, but so do the bills from everyday life, from mortgage and utilities, to gas and groceries.

Today, I attended a fundraiser for Family Reach, a non-profit that financially supports families that are dealing with cancer, mostly suffered by children. Half of the families they serve have a post-diagnosis income of less than $24,250; one-third are single-parent households. You can see their impact here.

[Edit: The fundraiser was October 14, although I’m posting this on October 15.]
