Financial Support for Children and Families
Often families are separated during cancer treatments, because the best medical care may not be available close to home. They don’t always have the financial means to receive treatment at the hospital that will provide the best opportunity for survival for their child. That’s where Along Comes Hope steps in to help.
It’s our goal to help all families remain by their children’s sides during treatment. From airfare and lodging to gas and grocery gift cards, we do all we can to support families and make them as comfortable as possible when having to travel for medical treatments.
The Children’s Oncology Group (COG), a National Cancer Institute (NCI) supported clinical trials group, is the world’s largest organization devoted exclusively to childhood and adolescent cancer research. The COG unite experts in childhood cancer at 200 leading children’s hospitals, universities and cancer centers across the United States in the fight against childhood cancer.
