About Family Reach
Since 1996, Family Reach has been helping families with a child or parent afflicted with cancer deal with the overwhelming financial and emotional burdens of the disease. As families try to cope with months of cancer treatment, out of pocket medical expenses and everyday living costs, they often reach critical breaking point. Not only do they risk losing their homes, stability and hope, but also their ability to ensure that their loved-ones receive the vital care they need to survive. Through an effective process developed through years of collaboration with hospital social workers, Family Reach provides urgent assistance to families in a timely, compassionate manner. Family Reach is a lifeline for families fighting cancer nationwide.
