Each child that walks through the doors of Brenner Children’s is just like every other child – they have vivid imaginations about growing up and fulfilling their life-long dream of becoming a doctor, teacher, interior decorator or fireman. Realizing these dreams is hard enough under normal circumstances, but a child with an injury or sickness has so much more to overcome.
Our team of doctors, nurses and care givers provide them with the best medical expertise to make them well, but oftentimes, patients and their families require additional resources to help with the financial burden of caring for a sick child. Community support is needed to ease the financial stress that so many families face, which allows them to focus on getting their child well so they can grow up and realize their dream.
The Brenner Children’s Patient Assistance Fund assists families with these burdens. Families in need receive help with travel expenses, medications, meals, bereavement services, home health equipment and much more. This assistance may mean a parent doesn’t have to choose between buying medication for their sick child or buying groceries for the family. The need is all too often that great.
All funds raised during the month of Cheers! directly benefit the Brenner Children’s Patient Assistance Fund. You can help make dreams come true by participating in one or all Cheers! for Brenner Children’s events or by making a donation today!
