When a child is diagnosed with cancer the whole family is diagnosed.
Cancer places an emotional strain on the entire family, parents, siblings, and caretakers alike. Our foundation provides emotional support programs at no cost to the family. NNCCF is a safe place for families to share the burden of childhood cancer, receive a hug and take a breather. We encourage families to make appointments.
- No More Treatment Celebrations
This celebration is truly the most impactful and special event for the children, parents, siblings, caretakers, and staff. When a child completes treatment, we throw an individualized party with a bell ringing – which could mark the end of chemo or radiation, cancer-free milestones, and more. The child rings the bell loud and proud for all to hear, marking a new chapter in life and leaving cancer behind. Our beautiful “No More Treatment” bell is mounted in the front of our office offering hope to the children and their families currently in treatment.
- Family Events
NNCCF organizes free family outings throughout the year to help provide an opportunity for families to meet others and allow diagnosed children, siblings, and parents to enjoy an activity together and build memories. Activities range from movie nights, museum parties, fishing trips, baseball games, and more. We would like to give our gratitude to the many community partners who make these events possible.
- Counseling Reimbursement
Counseling can help guide families and children through the challenges and concerns that arise along the cancer journey.
- Casey’s Closet and Kylee’s Corner
Our extensive toy closet offers an escape from treatment and a way to reconnect through games, puzzles, crafts, toys, and more. Children battling cancer and their siblings are encouraged to choose a brand-new toy from the closet. This closet was named in honor of Casey Stitler, our Board of Directors President and former NNCCF child. We also have a library of new books for families, located in Kylee’s Corner – donated in memory of Kylee.
- Holiday Party
We celebrate the holidays by throwing a themed gala for families at the end of the year.
