Cancer Childcare is a new nonprofit founded to pay for childcare related costs to eligible parents who are undergoing cancer treatment. Currently there is not a nonprofit that exists to serve this important need.

A message from the founder. Upon birth of my son, in September 2014, I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. I had a whole year of cancer treatment ahead of me with month long stays in the hospital. My son and his father went to live with his parents/grandparents. Father went to work all day while grandparents took care of our son. I was grateful to have them be able to watch our newborn son. I cannot imagine how expensive it would have been to put our newborn in daycare full-time. I needed to focus on my treatment and how I was going to pay for that. My son is now six years old and I am five years in remission in September. Cancer Childcare is here to pay for childcare costs to eligible parents who are currently in treatment for cancer. Cancer is tough and expensive but an extra expense shouldn’t stress you out. Let us help and cover the cost of childcare during treatment.
