Helping Families – How Donations Are Used

Sometimes the money goes towards a mortgage or other bill payment; other times the donation is for toys or a fun experience; and often we donate an item that helps manage the illness better – a piece of medical equipment, for example. Anything that makes life just a little bit easier for  sick children and their families makes a huge difference.
