For every child fighting cancer, and every parent and sibling fighting along with them, Kids Cancer Alliance offer a powerful message: You are not alone. Our programs unite families and other kids with cancer in a powerful alliance of friendship and support. Through summer camps, retreats, in-hospital programs, and financial assistance, we let kids forget about fighting cancer and focus on conquering the playground.
“USA Cares was the first one to listen to me,” Darrian said. “There wasn’t judgment just, ‘How can we fix this problem? USA Cares’ assistance kept Darrian and his family in their apartment. Today, he is employed and continuing treatment for his mental health. It took some time jumping from doctor to doctor, trying different medications, different therapies, but it’s worth it, Darrian said. I want other veterans to know it’s OK to ask for help. We all do at some point. Whether it’s your health, or your financials, don’t let your pride get in the way of someone helping you get to a better spot.”
