Partnership for Children believes that all children living with a life-threatening condition should have access to the care and emotional support they need to live life as fully as possible. Our mission is to increase access to medical care for children living with serious illness and to support their families.
Everyone knows that gas prices have skyrocketed and it can be a struggle to fill up your tank to get to where you need to go. Imagine having a child that is living with a very serious illness who needs medical care at a hospital over 100 miles away, and not having the money to pay for gas to get them there and back home. This is the reality for many families in our community. You can help! Donate now to fill up the gas tank for a family, and to help a child get the medical care they need to live life as fully as possible.
Partnership for Children is an organization that is very near and dear to our hearts. Our family first learned about them when our daughter Olivia was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2015. Their support during this time is something we will forever be grateful for. It was not uncommon for us to put in 200 miles a day, up to 1,000 miles a week between my wife and I. Living on the road and in the hospital gets expensive and exhausting to say the least. With COVID still spreading, gas prices rising, safety is crucial to an immune-compromised child’s survival. Taking public transportation, Uber, or taxi rides isn’t an option for many families. The fact that you can call somebody in your area code and have someone answer and know your child’s name makes all the difference in the world. We’ve seen and felt this firsthand.
