Currently, Childhood Leukemia Warriors Foundation provides ongoing financial assistance to the families for the entirety of their treatment at Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, IL, and Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, IL. Our future goal is to provide the same financial assistance to children at all Chicago-land area hospitals.
Leukemia is the most common childhood cancer; it accounts for 1 out of 3 cancers in children. While the cure rate slowly rises, the effect on families is life changing. In addition to the enormous amount of emotional pain endured by families, the financial challenges faced by families is extraordinary. The economic burden can have long-term effects on the financial security of the family, the quality of life, and the future wellbeing of the family. When parents are told "your child has leukemia", parents only concern is to save the life of their child. Then comes the harsh reality of finances, that few would ever be prepared for. It generally takes over 3 years to finish treatments and 5 years before a child is considered cured. While going through this life altering event, we have become very aware of the stressor’s families are facing. Our organization is determined to help these families when they need help the most. We would not be able to do this without all the help from our supporters.
