RUNWAY TO HOPE FUNDS RESEARCH, TREATMENT, AND CARE FOR KIDS FIGHTING CANCER
How funds raised by Runway to Hope are distributed:
THE $3 MILLION PLEDGE
Runway To Hope has pledged $1 million to the pediatric oncology programs at each of the three children's hospitals in Central Florida.
At Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children, funds support Central Florida’s first ever comprehensive Pediatric Neuro-Oncology Program, comprised of a team that provides the full range of medical and emotional support specific to pediatric brain tumor patients during and after treatment.
At Florida Hospital for Children, Runway to Hope funds the hospital's pediatricﾠpalliative care program, which provides physical, emotional and spiritual support to children suffering from cancer and their families.
At Nemours Children’s Hospital, Runway to Hope funds both the Community Children’s Oncology Program — a database that will improve ﾠaccess to ﾠleading-edge therapies, research and resources for pediatric cancer patients throughout Northern and Central Florida — and Pediatric Interventional Oncology, which serves cancer patients directly by utilizing rare and advanced imaging technologies for localized treatment.
Runway to Hope provides direct assistance that is desperately needed by children and families affected by pediatric cancer. For these families, the promise of a future cure isn't enough. They need help today.
When a child is diagnosed with cancer,ﾠ the entire family suffers. Often one parent has to quit work to care for the child, dramatically reducing the family's income. Medical expenses and other bills mount quickly; the stress can overwhelm parents and children alike. Runway to Hope partners with other local non-profit organizations to create ﾠa network of support for these families. Your contribution may buy a gas card that allows a mother to visit her sick child in the hospital, lunch for a family who can no longer afford meals in the hospital cafeteria, or keep the lights on in the home of a family caring for a child with cancer. The needs are endless and solely funded by philanthropy. With the support from our community, Runway to Hope can continue to provide the necessary assistance for these brave children and their families.
