Providing a child with a Big Brother or Big Sister – someone they can look up to, explore the world with, put their trust in – can be life-changing. Just by spending one-on-one time with a special friend who offers new experiences and new choices, a child learns more about the world and their own place in it. From the moment they are matched with a mentor a door is opened, and the future is full of possibilities.
We are a charitable organization that encourages and facilitates grants to children whose parent or guardian is struggling with a diagnosis of cancer. These grants support the children’s extracurricular activities so that they may feel some sense of normalcy as their parent focuses on treatment and recovery. Cancer affects the whole family, not just the person with cancer – and can change the whole dynamic of a family. While children and teenagers must face fear and uncertainty as their parent undergoes treatment, they may also be required to take on more roles and responsibility. CFRF hopes to lesson some of the burden and reduce stress by making it possible for children to either continue in regular extracurricular activities so that their routines are not too disrupted or perhaps try something new that can act as a distraction. No matter what, a child or teenager has enough to worry about without also having to worry about the cost of their activity. It’s ok to ask for help.
