1… 2… 2023 By The Numbers!
As 2023 comes to a close and we prepare to welcome 2024, we want to thank you for your remarkable, unwavering support this past year. Your efforts made a direct impact on families dealing with a pediatric cancer diagnosis. In fact, with your help, TRF provided:
- More than 10,000 pediatric cancer families with support in 2023.
- Over 500,000 payments to TRF Families since our organization’s inception with almost half of those payments made during this past year with our international partners.
- More than 1,000 Pen Pal letters to our TRF Families, sharing messages of hope and support to brighten their day.
- 30 Team TRF and Ambassador events, where supports combine their talents and efforts to raise money for TRF and families affected by pediatric cancer
With the end of the year around the corner, we embark on our final giving campaign of the year. Our goal is to strengthen families financially and emotionally as they cope with the tragedy of a pediatric cancer diagnosis by providing grants specifically to offset out-of-pocket life expenses.
Will you join us in easing the emotional, mental and financial burden on pediatric cancer families?
