In celebration of Landyn being 1 year in remission from OMS and 3 years cancer free we would like to help families by providing them with monthly parking passes. Our goal is to raise enough money to provide 35 families with a monthly parking pass that cost is $70.00 a month.
We were introduced to Helping Families Handle Cancer just days after Landyn was diagnosed with stage 1 Neuroblastoma and a rare neurological condition OMS. Helping families Handle Cancer helps families who are struggling finacially while their child is going through cancer treatment.
I remember very clearly the morning I got a call from Carie the founder of HFHC and a childhood cancer survivor herself. She called the first morning we were home from the hospital after Landyns initial diagnosis. I was in shock and extremely sleep deprived. I remember Carie calling in such a gentle and kind manner. She introduced herself and the organization and offered to help with parking passes. I remember after we ended the call feeling overwhelemed with gratitude. Someone cared and was wanting to help our family in the worst time of our lives.
A parking pass may seem like a small gesture but it actually was lifting a burden from our shoulder's. The expense of parking passes whether day visits, weeks, or months quickly adds up for families. The last thing any parent should have to worry about is having to make sure they have paid for parking when they are facing the battle of their lives.
Helping Families Handle Cancer went on to help us with parking passes, a mortgage payment and our oldest preschool fees.
Please help our family give back to those just starting out their battle and those families that have been battling cancer for months or even years.
