Psychosocial Funding Makes an Impact to Support Child Life Services at Maimonides in New Jersey

Max Cure Foundation recently awarded a grant to Maimonides Medical Center as a stop-gap measure that, under our psychosocial grant program, ensures that Child Life Services and support groups are funded at the hospital. In 2017 Max Cure received a grant from Love Your Melon, which sells apparel with the intent to support pediatric cancer foundations with the profit generated by sales of high-quality and great looking knit hats and other accessories.

Part of our grant proposal was to support a psychosocial initiative at Maimonides Medical Center, a busy treatment facility in Brooklyn, which just recently needed to scale back psychosocial support to meet budget needs at the hospital. With input from the Social Work and Child Life Services departments, Max Cure was able to ensure that families will continue to receive emotional and programming support to help fight against the stresses that pediatric cancer treatment brings to the child and their family. Everyone at Max Cure is rooting for the families and staff at Maimonides Medical Center to have a great 2018 and find ways to bolster psychosocial support even further!
