Joel’s Kids Foundation Financial Assistance Grant

Share Article

Founded July 2013, Joel’s Kids Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to providing education, advocacy and resources to children and families affected by Leukemia. Joel’s Kids Foundation wasn’t a simple community service idea formed as a way to give back, but was the silver lining that Joel found during his own journey with the disease.

Our vision is a world where children and families affected by Leukemia can partner with the medical community to fight the disease without having to choose between life sustaining treatment and basic living expenses.

In 2015, Joel’s Kids Foundation will be awarding $10,000 dollars to five (5) families. Each family will receive $2,000 dollars to assist with travel and/or lodging for individuals caring for children undergoing treatment for blood cancer. Currently, we are seeking recipients and must adhere to the criteria below.

The criteria to receive an award are as follow:

1.    Must have a current diagnosis of leukemia requiring aggressive treatment
2.    The treatment facility must be more than 300 miles from the patient’s primary residence
3.     All recipients are required to provide lodging and gas receipts
4.    All applications must be submitted by August 31, 2015

Joel’s Kids Foundation understands that dealing with a diagnosis such as cancer is difficult and can have a significant impact on the entire family. During the treatment process, financial issues should not exacerbate your concerns. It is our goal to provide resources to help families alleviate their financial burdens and worries.

Joel’s Kids Foundation, giving Hope, Strength, & Courage
