Family Assistance Program

The fight against a pediatric cancer becomes all-consuming. As a result, the every day things the rest of us take for granted become that much more difficult to handle and, more importantly, take time from the family. The family assistance program developed by the Foundation grew out of the experiences of the O’Connell family as a result of Kyle’s journey. Throughout the two years Kyle fought his brain tumor, they were the recipients of unexpected and surprising acts of kindness and generosity which allowed them to spend more time with Kyle and their daughter, Riley.

At present, we are offering financial assistance to those who have a child currently undergoing treatment for a brain tumor. Applications are accepted and reviewed in a timely manner. We make every attempt to help as generously as we can with the funds that have been set aside for this purpose.

Please contact Julie O’Connell for more information and to receive the application. Forms must be signed by your doctor and/or social worker.
