Thank you for moving us toward our goal!
Friends and Supporters!
Our first Annual Appeal was a huge success! Thanks to your support, we raised over $55,000 last December to support families battling childhood cancer.
On behalf of the incredible children and families we serve and the many volunteers who make our work possible, thank you for your tremendous generosity! A special “thank you” as well to all of you who have taken the time to write messages of support.
Your gifts and kind words of encouragement show how much you value the amazing work MCC is doing. We hope that you will continue to show your commitment to these families by encouraging others to support MCC.
Please share our work with your friends and colleagues. MCC is a small and relatively new organization. We need your help to reach more people.
This past year alone, MCC has helped 38 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.
Looking ahead, our next Annual Appeal will take place in September, which fittingly is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. We hope you will join the fight! But don’t wait until September, we need your help year round. Join our fight against childhood cancer by giving today. Your gift can save a child’s life!

How Your Donation Helps
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.
