Who We Support We are honored to help those in need
Improving Quality of Life Through Direct Financial Assistance
Through our Direct Financial Assistance program, JUST TRYAN IT covers mortgage, rent, utilities, transportation, car payments, gas, parking, food, childcare and other non-medical expenses for families battling pediatric cancers.
Our financial support had a significant impact on the housing needs of patients and families. Forty five percent (45%) of our funds were used to stabilize housing through mortgage and rental payments. Stabilized housing is a basic human need with tremendous impact on a patient’s quality of life. With the loss of housing comes immense emotional distress, higher risk of infection, inability to adhere to a treatment plan.
