For over 10 years, we’ve earned a reputation for being reliable, consistent and impactful providers of practical, financial and emotional support, directly to children with cancer and their families, at every stage of treatment: from diagnosis to recovery.

Our unique combination of programs address the non-medical needs of children with cancer, like Bags of Love, which provides everyday essentials to ease the burden of what is often immediate hospitalization, or Lifeline, a support network that connects survivor families with newly diagnosed ones. Art from the Heart is a program that gives children undergoing treatment something to look forward to – a total at home room makeover – conducted by students working with volunteer designers. Our heralded Volunteer program helps provide welcome diversions during the long hours of treatment. We also provide much-needed Emergency Funds to help cover out-of-pocket costs and pay for financial emergencies like overdue mortgages or utility bills, so that no family has to choose between caring for a sick child and providing for their family.

The support we provide is deeply appreciated by the families we serve, and the medical community with whom we have formed enduring partnerships. An investment in Circle of Care has an impact, not just on our families, who need your help, but also the community. An analysis of the impact of our program revealed that for every $1 invested in Circle of Care, we generate $5.66 of impact in the community. That’s impressive, but no metric is more valuable than being there to support a child with cancer during treatment.
