Roar Beyond Barriers Program
Roar Beyond Barriers
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the average family spends 40+ hours per week caring for their child while they are in active treatment. Parents must take time off from work, or in many cases leave their job to care for their child. Often in dual-parent homes, a working parent has to take a second job to pay for mounting medical costs and the loss of income.
The Max Cure Foundation’s Roar Beyond Barriers program provides financial support to low-income and military families who have a child battling cancer to help ease some of the burdens on the family while dealing with the child’s diagnosis.
The Roar Beyond Barriers program allows us to provide monthly systemic support to 30+ families every month. These gift cards are used towards necessities such as food, clothing and toiletries. MCF interacts with hospital social workers that refer families with children in active treatment and meet program qualifications. The social workers provide a list of qualified candidates, of which MCF’s Executive Director and Board of Directors select those families to participate in the program. Upon receipt of all required information by the social worker, families selected for the program will receive their first gift card(s) within 30 days of registration, and every month thereafter while the child is in active treatment and sufficient funding for the program remains available.
You can make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer, and their families by making a contribution towards the Roar Beyond Barriers program today.
