Recognizing the emotional toll a diagnosis like pediatric cancer can take on the family, ECF’s professional Caseworkers are focused on maintaining the emotional balance of the family unit. Caseworkers provide counseling and emotional support for the entire family and can help siblings, and others in the family understand what they need to know about cancer – in terms they can understand.
Our four Regional Centers serve the entire state of New Jersey by collecting and distributing groceries, clothing, toys, household items, and birthday/holiday gifts, to struggling families. These efforts help ease families’ burdens and preserve their quality of life. While battling pediatric cancer, even simple tasks are often neglected. This is because the family becomes overwhelmed by taking care of their child’s needs.
Emergency funds are available for ECF families who find themselves in a financial crisis. These funds help with basic services that a family needs to survive, such as rent or utilities. Sometimes, this vital assistance reimburses the family for meals while they were in the hospital. Tragically, in some incidents, funds are available for families who are unable to meet the high costs of memorial services.
Together we can help local families that have children battling cancer have a brighter holiday season.
