WE ARE HERE TO HELP

There are many hardships a family experiences after a pediatric cancer diagnosis.

For the child with cancer, it can be physically painful and scary.

 

Many children also struggle in school due to the side effects of treatment. For parents, it is the most frightening and emotionally exhausting experience of their lives.

Many families lose income while seeing their child through treatment,

causing significant financial stress.

Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation addresses all of these issues.

OUR PROGRAMS ARE THE HEART OF TBCF

We offer three core programs to lessen the immediate financial, emotional,

and educational challenges experienced with a pediatric cancer diagnosis,

while providing ongoing opportunities for families to connect

with each other in a safe space. 

FINANCIAL

STABILITY

PROGRAM

Low-to-moderate income families can receive help with household bills and expenses associated with caring for a sick child. Funds also help offset loss of income due to one or both parents reducing work hours or leaving their job to care for their child.

EMOTIONAL

SUPPORT

PROGRAM

TBCF provides professional and peer support for the entire family, including parents, the child in treatment, and their siblings to ease emotional hardship. These programs include Family Counseling Groups, Family Connection Events, Project Holiday & More!

EDUCATIONAL

ADVOCACY

PROGRAM

This program gives parents the necessary tools to support and advocate for their child's academic career and provides a smooth transition back to school following treatment. Programs include tutoring services as well as neuropsychological testing.

Mission Statement: Advocates for families living in Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo counties that have a child with cancer by providing financial, educational, and emotional support.
