Adopt a Family
Within the next two weeks, the P.U.N.T. Foundation will receive the holiday wish lists of several children in our community fighting cancer, along with that of their siblings and parents through the social workers at Roswell Park Cancer Institute & Buffalo's Women & Children's Hospital.
The average out-of-pocket cost for a family (with good health insurance) in the first year of pediatric cancer diagnosis is $20,000? This staggering cost is often coupled with a loss of income since a parent often suspends employment to be by their child’s side. The financial burden of the holidays loom large for these families.
Many times, the gifts provided by the P.U.N.T. Foundation's Adopt-a-Family program are the gifts these children receive on Christmas morning from Santa. You can help us create Christmas magic for a local child in the fight for their life. You can give that child's parents the beautiful gift of seeing a smile on their sick son or daughter's face on Christmas morning.
Please consider getting your family, company, school or organization to "Adopt-a-Family" battling pediatric cancer this holiday season. There is no obligation to fulfill every item requested and you
. You can help with shopping and wrapping or simply help provide a donation and our team will take care of the rest!
We guarantee you will also give a gift to yourself in knowing you have helped make a profound difference to a family when they have never needed it more.
We have attached a flyer you can share with others. Please e-mail our program coordinator Bridgett Moffett at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you may have or to let us know you'd like to be part of our mission to "be there" for families fighting childhood cancer this holiday season.
