September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

Written on August 2, 2022

No one budgets for cancer. The facts are staggering. The average individual hospital stay for pediatric cancer costs over $40,000 Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality – AHRQ). Additionally, nearly 75% of families experience loss of 50% or more of household income (National Coalition of Cancer Survivors – NCCS). Not only does childhood cancer take a financial toll on a family, it takes an emotional toll as well. Families are isolated due to treatment that is often in-patient. Children’s Cancer Partners is there to assist with all needs of a Carolina child fighting cancer, and you can, too. Here’s how you can help over 1,700 Carolina children battling cancer!
