The Families In Need Foundation provides funding to Boston Children's Hospital that is used to help families who need assistance pay for meals, transportation, utility bills and other expenses while caring for a child with cancer.
Many parents are unable to work or have to miss time while their child is being treated at Boston Children's Hospital. As a result, they experience a loss of income and have a difficult time paying for their home and other bills. The financial hardship also increases stress on families that are already facing unimaginably painful situations. The BCH “Extraordinary Needs Fund” is aligned with the Families in Need Foundation to provide financial assistance to these families, allowing them to make ends meet while their child undergoes treatment.
