The journey a family must take when their child experiences a critical illness is often overlooked, yet it can make or break you. Research organizations searching for cures and hospitals treating critically-ill kids are plentiful and well-funded. But, what happens if a family makes a dollar or more than government support programs and nonprofit organizations will allow? Many middle and working-class families live on the edge just making ends meet. They often rely on two incomes and pay for private insurance usually with high deductibles and co-pays. Their treatment options and hospital choices can be limited because they chose an affordable plan betting a medical crisis will not occur…then it happens! Where do they turn?…often to family and friends. However, this can be a confusing and overwhelming labor of love for even the closest of family members and friends.
Now there is a way not only to make the journey bearable, but blessed…Here to Serve!

We allow your friends and family to help in meaningful ways with tools we know will make them more effective in supporting you and your family without overwhelming either you or your family and friends. All in an effort to make the journey easier so you can focus on your sick child and family.
