How Your Donation Helps

Your donation will Help us spread a little joy with a gift card, healing care package or help alleviate a financial burden. Most families are working so hard to make ends meet and do not have extra sick days to take time off work to be with their child. Your donation can help pay a medical bill or bring food to the table. Your contribution also allows us to keep providing walkie talkies to children’s hospitals. Most kids are placed in isolation due to fevers, infections, and covid restrictions some kids are left alone in their rooms when both parents are forced to return to work. Chat with Champs allows kids to connect and socialize with others with fun walkie talkies at any given time during their hospital stay. No child should fight cancer alone.

How You’re HelpingWatch the video

In 2006, at age 11, Taylor was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. After 9 months of chemotherapy and surgery on her right arm, Taylor was declared cancer-free. Unfortunately, she relapsed 18 months later when a spot was found on her lung. After her third relapse, the family was desperate for a cure. Thanks to a clinical trial, made possible by an infrastructure grant from ALSF, Taylor and her family finally had hope.
