Any family that we have personally met and have a relationship with in #cancerville may from time to time request assistance with any one of these needs. We are able to assist depending on our financial situations and in-kind donations received.
MCHCT recognizes that diagnosed families who are already battling financially due to their economic climate will face even harsher times as a result of the diagnosis. We also know that although treatment in most cases are subsidized at government hospitals that there are many additional expenses like transport costs for frequent trips to hospital, airtime to stay in contact with loves ones at home and nutrition requirements of the family and patient that need to be catered for. We also recognize that it takes a family a long time to get back on their feel after their treatment is complete or their child passes away.
