Paul was a teenager with dreams. He really wanted the chance to ride in a Lamborghini and he hoped that someday he’d have the chance to meet stars from one of his favorite TV shows.
But Paul’s time was running short. A brain tumor was quickly progressing, so the team at American Cancer Fund for Children got to work to make sure Paul could experience the dreams he was waiting for. They arranged for Paul to get the thrill of an extended ride in a Lamborghini, and they brought Paul to the sets of his favorite TV shows. Thanks to American Cancer Fund for Children, he was able to visit “Let’s Make a Deal” and also to meet stars of several shows, including “NCIS.” Paul and his family were grateful to share the happiness of those experiences before he lost his battle with cancer.
Two-year-old Jennifer has the love of a family who needs support and resources. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor and continues her fight, but Jennifer’s family is barely able to pay for rent or put food on their table. That’s where American Cancer Fund for Children comes in. Staff members solicited the aid of local restaurants and supermarkets that agreed to provide meals and basic necessities. Not only that, the family received gifts from ACF for Children, including a day at a theme park so Jennifer and her loved ones could make memories together.
You can help continue the work of providing for families battling cancer. With an American Cancer Fund for Children vehicle donation, the car you no longer need becomes the means to bring smiles to kids with serious illnesses.
The beauty of a car donation to the American Cancer Fund for Children is that it’s an extremely simple process. A 3-5 minute phone call is all you need for your car to become a channel of comfort and happiness for a family struggling to handle the pain caused by cancer.
Sometimes the stress of illness can break down a family’s communication and threaten to tear parents and children apart. That’s what was happening in the lives of 7-year-old Jessica and her family. They were in crisis, so American Cancer Fund stepped in.
Because of the generosity of donors like you, the organization was able to provide the family with a special day at the Kids Cancer Connection beach house, where they got to swim in the water and play in the sand. American Cancer Fund also arranged for them to have lunch and offered family members gifts to take home. Jessica’s family still talks about what an amazing day that was for them.
