In 2017, the Max Cure Foundation was able to disburse $68,290 in financial assistance through the Roar Beyond Barriers Program. This covered a total of 53 families across 11 states, especially in the states of Pennsylvania, New York, and Ohio, the three of which made up 51% of the total population of the program. Of these funds, $1,050 was directly paid to families in emergency situations who requested help from our Emergency Grant Fund, which helps families in critical situations where utility service, rent, or other important bills require payment. A further $10,400 was paid directly to families by means of check, and $52,840 was given to families in the form of Wal-Mart gift cards, which are also usable at Sam’s Club stores across America. In all, families across 20 states and counting over 150 have been assisted by the Roar Beyond Barriers program since inception, and over $500,000 has been given to families to-date across our financial assistance initiative.
“On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for the generous gift cards, school supplies, and cleaning products that have been sent to us from Max Cure Foundation. It has helped tremendously, and we are so very appreciative! My son Braeden is still receiving chemo at CHOP and it’s been a long road for him. Thank you for thinking of our family during this time.”
