An organization is only as strong as its volunteers and supporters. We need the help of individuals, businesses, corporations, school and other non-profits willing to commit time and resources. From a student bake sale to the local business community up to the corporate boardroom – everyone involved will be given the opportunity to reap the benefits of providing personal, direct and immediate aid to these children.
WE NEED YOU…so that no time is lost in being able to meet vital needs.
When we receive a referral about a family in need, it is attended to immediately. We want to reach out with hope and help — as soon as possible.
WE NEED YOU…so that we can alleviate the burden when a financial need arises.
The biggest need for a family battling pediatric cancer is financial assistance. The needs are so vast and we are committed to doing all that we can to help in this area. We receive referrals of families who are in jeopardy of losing household utilities; health insurance, etc. due to the fact that they are taking time from work and their medical bills are so enormous. In addition, some families can no longer afford the medications needed for their child or are without transportaiton to and from their child’s treatment center. The Ashley Lauren Foundation is there to cover critical situations that need immediate attention.
WE NEED YOU…so that each family knows that they are not alone and have our continued support.
The effect of childhood cancer on both the child and the families is devastating and long lasting. After the long battle and treatment, children and families face the fear of recurrence, as well as possible physical, mental and emotional long term effects. Families often face stresses related to work, school, finances, specialized care (when needed), adjusting back to “normal” life and the strain of the treatment on the family. All of this is made even more difficult when a child fighting cancer loses the battle…sometimes, this is when we are needed the most.
WE NEED YOU…to support us in helping these children through an ordeal that no child should have to face.
Call The Ashley Lauren Foundation office to explore the vast amount of ways you can get involved. You will be making a huge difference in the life of a child suffering from cancer.
