Crush Childhood Cancer provides emotional and financial support to families with children battling cancer. A cancer diagnosis can have the same financial impact as a 20% reduction in family income. The impact is often more severe with pediatric cancer as one parent often must stop working to navigate their child's treatment plan. The emotional impact is unimaginable. Crush exists to help offset those expenses and walk along side families as they battle cancer. Whether we sit with parents as they wait for scan results, babysit siblings or provide help with the bills, we strive to make sure our families know they are not fighting alone.
What started as a high school project by our founder, Samantha Paradis, has grown into an ongoing effort to provide as much support as possible to these families as they battle cancer on a daily basis. Because Crush is a completely volunteer-run charity, we are able to give 100% of our proceeds to our families.
