It’s that time of year again, back to school! Every fall, parents flock to the bus stop to see their kids off to the classroom…for the very first time. As they watch who was once their precious bundle board the bus, moms and dads may wonder about the challenges that lie ahead.
Tough teachers…fights with friends…none of these problems are easy, but many parents think this is as bad as it gets. Unfortunately, others must face the unthinkable: their child is diagnosed with a life-threatening disease.
Imagine: as some families are setting a budget for school supplies, yours is trying to scrape together money for cancer treatments. While another set of parents feels guilty that they can’tafford the latest lunchbox, you are crushed with helplessness when you realize the doctors can’t help you without insurance.
All parents want to ease their child’s pain, but what if you can’t? Bandaging a cut is easy; watching your baby struggle to survive is not. This is where we come in. You don’t have to fight this battle alone!
Children’s Hospitals National Foundation (www.chnf.org) raises money and awareness to help children with diseases. This nonprofit, founded in 2102, organizes charity events and plans hospital visits for volunteers to cheer up patients. We have also helped fund cancer research to prevent future diagnoses. Check out the Facebook page, (link: https://www.facebook.com/CHNFChildren’s?fref=ts), where you can subscribe to receive more information daily.
Every little bit helps: from a cup of coffee sold at a fundraiser to a warm smile for a bedridden child, it doesn’t take much to give back!
It may only take a few minutes to read our mission and join the organization…but for our small soldiers, that time can make all the difference.
