Walk A Mile In Their Shoes

  “Your Child Has Cancer.”

It is difficult for many to comprehend even having to hear those words. But now, we all can relate a little more closely to a “day in the life” of this plight. Anxiety, loss of control, the fear that every germ might pose a serious medical threat. Add on the burden of financial instability and lost wages. THESE ARE THEIR SHOES of families facing pediatric cancer since the day that diagnosis came.

P.U.N.T. Pediatric Cancer Collaborative’s “Helping Hands” program meets the most critical needs of WNY families whose children are fighting through providing assistance with direct payment of essential household expenses: rents, mortgages, auto loans, utility and medical bills, gas and groceries and more.

Participating families who walk the “Mile in Their Shoes” will be e-mailed a coupon for a FREE Slush at Sonic!

We Know THAT taking care of your own family in these trying times is difficult, but would you be willing to WALK A MILE for WNY FAMILIES FACING PEDIATRIC CANCER?
