Cancer is big, but our children’s will to live is bigger. We never want a child’s strength to fight hindered by the financial burden of their treatment. NNCCF focuses on financial assistance to help families alleviate this burden.
In the battle against cancer, your child is doing the fighting, but this journey impacts the whole family. We support you and your family by taking a special interest in your emotional health by providing compassionate support programs to guide you through this journey.
All applications must be received prior to the child’s 21st birthday, but if medical treatment is ongoing NNCCF may continue to assist families until the child turns 25 years old.
Parent to Parent Support Groups
Studies show that pediatric cancer affects more than just the child. The entire family is affected, including the parents. Parents with more resources are proven to have better health, which means better care for your child.
We want to give you a new resource: someone else you can depend on for empathy and understanding, and a friend fighting a similar battle as you are. By connecting parents who have children with similar diagnoses, we hope to strengthen the fight in everyone.
For our wonderful kids who have made it through the cancer journey and are now growing up as survivors, we would like to show our continued support. The Inspire Program is designed to guide childhood cancer survivors beyond their diagnosis into the world where limitless possibilities await.
The Inspire Program offers the opportunity to receive individual counseling to address emotional and psychological needs; the ability to attend a camp or educational conference to learn about the cancer journey; to receive a social connection with other survivors; and to apply for a scholarship to attend a higher education institution or for job training academies.
Scholarship applicants must meet certain criteria and write an essay.
