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, first responder, and military families who have a child battling cancer to help ease some of the financial burdens on the family while dealing with the child’s diagnosis. Roar Beyond Barriers provides assistance in the form of financial aid paid to families on a quarterly basis as a systemic form of support. We hope this steady source of extra income can help alleviate some of the financial crunch a sick child can create in a family’s budget.
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.
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.
