"I can't imagine how it must be like having a child with cancer. Glad I can help in a way. Also, Bex, you do an amazing job! :)"
Childhood cancer is a horrific disease that affects 1 in 285 kids. And yet receives less than 4% of the federal budget allocated to curing cancer. The financial strain that a family undergoes is on average $10,000 per year out of pocket. On top of that, one parent will often have to stop working to care for the child, and if it is a single parent home, this can compound the problem.
My goal is to help ease this financial burden on families, by partnering with the Be Brave Foundation to provide direct financial assistance to families in the Greater Atlanta & Los Angeles area. Be Brave Foundation is entirely volunteer run, and has helped hundreds of families since 2014. The founders, Mina & Jeremy Chambers, know first hand the struggle, as their own son was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Leukemia in February 2013. Joshua has touched and inspired so many people around the world, myself included, and is the reason I have decided to join the fight against childhood cancer with him.
But, I don't want you to just give for the sake of giving, I want to show you my gratitude by giving something back to you. So, I have come up with an awesome reward platform for donors. But you have to act fast, as their are currently limited quantities available.
