Imagine for a moment having a child diagnosed with cancer. Within moments you can feel the fear, horror and guilt for what you should provide for your child flowing over you. While that’s terrifying enough, it’s even worse when the financial reality sets in. There are treatments and medicines to buy, some of which aren’t covered by even the best health insurance programs. Add to that for most families with a pediatric cancer patient, lost work, travel and lodging expenses to get their child to the hospital for treatment. This is why Cops for Kids with Cancer was founded.
Cops for Kids with Cancer was founded by police offers to raise money for contributions to families with a child undergoing cancer treatment. Cops for Kids with Cancer is volunteer run and operated by current and retired police officers. More than 90 percent of your contributions go directly to families to help cover treatment and living expenses from pediatric cancer.
Kory and I are matching contributions up to $5,000.00 to double the impact of all contributions to this great cause. A cause created by police officers volunteering to give back to the community by supporting families with children undergoing cancer treatment.
I’m inviting you to join my team for the Boston Marathon. It’s like you are coming along with me and you don’t even have to run!
Here are a few recent examples of the contributions Cops for Kids with Cancer has made to families battling pediatric cancer.
