How We Help Families
Sarah's Fight for Hope provides financial assistance to families to alleviate the burden of medical, household and funeral expenses. 1 in 4 families lose their annual household income due to treatment related work disruption. We are there to help lift the stress of keeping the heat on or a roof over their heads.
Our Programs bring smiles and hope to children and their families by providing a distraction from treatment in the form of customized gift baskets, birthday gifts, spa days, and tickets to special event such as Broadway, Concert and Sporting events.
Your contribution makes all this possible!
