Field of Dreams
A family getaway, an Amazon gift card to do some Lego shopping, a new bike, a trip to Great Wolf Lodge, a new playset, bedroom furniture, a new doll, a chance to swim one last time or have a special birthday party…these are just some of the morale boosts we have provided to ease the heartache of our young cancer warriors through our Field of Dreams program. Hospital psychologists call on us to be bearers of light on the darkest days by giving kids with cancer something to look forward to when they need it most.
Make a Difference in the Lives of Families Affected by Pediatric Cancer
The P.U.N.T. Pediatric Cancer Collaborative is a public charity that relies entirely on individual donations and sponsorships to provide critical support and programs for WNY families facing a pediatric cancer diagnosis.
Costs of Cancer
There are almost always hidden costs and challenges associated with a pediatric cancer diagnosis that may not be apparent from the outside looking in. One parent often stops working to help facilitate treatment and an income is instantly gone or wanes. Bills pile up quickly; nearly half of families facing pediatric cancer end up filing for medical bankruptcy.
