When a child is seriously ill or injured, we step in to make sure their family has what they need so they can focus on their well-being.
There’s nothing easy about having a sick child, or one who has been seriously injured. From long hospital stays to never-ending doctor visits to life-altering medications and treatments, the impact it has on day-to-day life is profound.
Our Patient & Family Assistance program provides comprehensive, tailored financial support to help families cope with the challenges and expenses that come with having an ill or injured child.

Impact in Action
For over two years, Mayeli battled through devastating leukemia treatments. We were there every step of the way, making sure her mom Khalani had the support she needed for her family.
Our flexible support ensures families have what they need when they need it, from day-to-day essentials to unique needs you may not even expect:
to help a parent who takes time off work to remain at their child’s bedside.
to help bridge financial challenges associated with their child’s medical care.
whose parents come to the hospital with an expired or damaged one, or who do not have the immediate resources to purchase one on their own.
such as a blinking baby monitor for deaf parents of an infant.
to ensure families have access to transportation to and from their medical appointments.
including the costs of a burial or cremation or transport of remains or cremains.
such as a pump rental or lactation services.
to maintain a family’s stability during their child’s treatment.
Bringing back the joy
When you’ve been spending a lot of time at medical appointments, sometimes you just need to do something fun. In addition to providing critical financial support, we’re helping families rediscover the joy of being together through engaging local experiences.
