Dawson’s Locker provides families fighting pediatric cancer daily sustenance with the little things that can make a big difference to help get them through. We stock the Locker for our hospital partners continually with gas and grocery cards, hospital parking vouchers and cafeteria vouchers. These contents are distributed on our behalf by medical social workers and psychologists to the families who need them most. These simple tokens can make a significant impact to lessen the daily stressors that weigh on families in the fight.
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.
