MCC Annual Appeal 2018
Friends and Supporters!
We are very proud to announce that we have launched our very first Annual Appeal! This is a sign of growth for our organization, and it signals our deepening commitment to reach more families.
We know you value the tremendous work MCC is doing with Jewish and Israeli families battling childhood cancer. We hope that you will show your commitment to the families we serve by supporting this appeal.
Thankfully, childhood cancer is rare. Because it is so rare, finding information about a particular type of cancer, or finding an expert who knows how to treat it, is incredibly difficult.
MCC conducts personalized cancer treatment research for families battling this terrible disease. MCC medical researchers, cancer experts, and volunteers find information about treatment options, new drugs, specialists, and emerging clinical trials. And we share this information with parents and caregivers so that their child can get the life-saving treatment they need.
We arm parents and caregivers with a powerful weapon in their battle against cancer – knowledge.
And we stay with our families throughout their child’s treatment. This past year alone, we’ve helped over 35 children and their families relocate and find life-saving treatment. And we’ve helped over 150 families since our founding in 2010.
But there are so many more families out there that need our help – your help.
Please donate right now or become a critical part of our Annual Appeal by creating your own fundraising page. You can help us reach our funding goal!
Our goal for this campaign is to raise enough money to help an additional 20 families. To do this, we need to raise $60,000 through December 31st.
Join our campaign or give right now. You can save a child’s life!

How Your Donation Helps
Thank you for moving us toward our goal!
Where the money goes
It costs about $3,000 to provide our services to one family. Much of this money goes to personalized research, patient advocacy, and family support services. We spend as little as possible on overhead expenses (5%). A large portion of the work we do is performed by volunteers.
About the chart
The chart above does not reflect the many hours our volunteers devote to helping each family. Relocation assistance and family support account for nearly 50% of our activities. Because most of these critical services are provided by dedicated volunteers, MCC spends very little money to deliver them. This enables us to devote precious revenue to personalized research and patient advocacy for families—services that must be performed by trained and knowledgable professionals.
