What We Do
Be The Rainbow Foundation offer's direct support to families and partners with established family support organizations in order to provide any assistance, alleviating the financial and emotional burdens a family facing pediatric cancer may be experiencing. We individualize and customize any assistance that we are able to provide. We partner with family support services, social workers, hospital child life, and other organizations to identify ways we can help.
Direct Family Support
Identifying families in need through hospital social services. So far we have been able to provide families assistance with travel expenses, lodging, food/meals, grants towards bill assistance (rent, child care costs, funeral expenses for example), and specialty care items (such as collapsible wagons, caregiver sleep kits/air mattresses for hospital stays, christmas gifts for siblings and patient). We also have a Monthly Caregiver meal program to families at Duke Children's Hospital.
Partner With Existing Organizations
We work with existing family support service organizations, social work and child life to identify families in need and ways we can help provide support. Through referrals, we have been able to expand our impact
Fundraise to Support Childhood Cancer Programs
Raise funds to assist families in need during childhood cancer diagnosis, treatment, and post treatment (survivorship). Our mission includes supporting existing family support organizations in their work as well. 100% of all donations go directly to our mission to help families facing the unimaginable.
Raise Awareness & Family Advocacy
Advocate for families facing this crisis and raise awareness so that improved funding for family support and pediatric cancer research can occur. We are a resource for families to help them find information during treatment, and to navigate this road--helping them never feel alone.
