When a child is diagnosed with cancer, there is a sudden and shocking whirlwind of doctor appointments, testing, and a rush to begin treatment. Because pediatric cancer often requires specialized care from a pediatric oncologist in a larger city, a child from the Gallatin Valley is often whisked away for treatment, typically to children's hospitals in Seattle, Denver, or Salt Lake City. This necessity to receive treatment so far from home can result in a substantial financial burden for families. There are many costs beyond what insurance will pay for such as loss of work, gas, airline tickets, food, housing, etc. With all of the stress and hardship that are an integral part of fighting cancer, it is our desire to meet some of the tangible needs of families in order to ease their burden. We have the opportunity to come together as a community to help some of our neighbors in this unique time of crisis.
