Giving Tuesday

Have you heard about Giving Tuesday? In the wake of Thanksgiving, we are bombarded with shopping opportunities as retailers push for the holiday rush to start earlier and earlier each year. Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday – they are all promotions retailers use to get you in their stores for the holiday gift buying bonanza.

So after you get some great deals that weekend, do some good with the money you saved! On Tuesday, December 3rd, join us for Giving Tuesday! Donate to the Fitzgerald Cancer Fund through our online donation site¬†on December 3rd, and we will use that money to buy gas gift cards for families with a child fighting neuroblastoma! Last year we raised $500 and gave gift cards to 20 neuroblastoma families. This year, let’s see if we can go above and beyond that amount! A $25 donation purchases one card, but any donation – from $1 to $100 – is help for families, and greatly appreciated.

Join us December 3rd for #GivingTuesday and help families Battle Neuroblastoma BETTER!

UPDATE!!

We were able to raise $650 to buy gas cards for neuroblastoma families! That means we will be sending out 26 $25 gas cards this holiday season. Thank you to everyone who helped us reach this goal! You will be giving 26 families a little extra love this holiday season.

Parent and Family Grant Program Now Available!

We are proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for our Parent and Family Grant Program! We will be awarding grants to families who have a child currently in treatment for Neuroblastoma. You can download our application from our website.

Families will need to fill out the application and bring it to their assigned social worker or oncologist for completion. (Instructions are on the website as well.)

We are still building our program, and are looking forward to assisting families while they battle neuroblastoma together.

Have you met our Neuroblastoma Kids?

Every so often, we feature a kid who has battled neuroblastoma on our webpage. We put up their picture an link to their facebook page or website. This month we are featuring Sierra! She fought a tough battle, which she lost November 23rd, 2010. Her mom is still fighting for other neuroblastoma kids, and she does great work! Check out the Sierra Rayn Foundation on facebook and read about this amazing kid and her fabulous family!
