For those looking for a little more information on this great charity:

Helping Families Handle Cancer Foundation was founded in 2008 by Carie Stock, a childhood cancer survivor. The foundation is very dear to Carie, as over 36 years ago she was diagnosed with a rare tumour called Rhabdomyosarcoma, at the age of only 13 months old. Carie’s mother was a single parent when Carie was diagnosed, and she struggled financially, as she spent every day at the hospital and had a newborn son to raise as well.  Her income was suspended while she spent all her time at the hospital and she found it difficult to pay household bills, often having to choose which bills to pay and which to delay.  This foundation fills the niche and needs in the community when parents are in crisis mode. The precious time they have with their child during this time period can be all that they have in the end.
