The purpose of our Financial Assistance Programs is to alleviate the non-medical financial hardships accompanying a childhood cancer diagnosis.

We offer programs that allow  parents to be supported  and to know they are not alone.  As a parent, you should never have to worry about the financial and emotional burden brought on by cancer.  TBCF’s programs allow parents to focus on what matters most, their child’s well-being, during one of the most difficult times of their young life.
