Our Blessing's Way program is designed to assist families during their fight against childhood, adolescent, and young adult cancer.
The journey of what may seem like endless chemotherapy and radiation treatments, scans, blood transfusions, and medications is daunting. It is physically, mentally, and emotionally challenging for a child that has cancer. What most people overlook is how incredibly stressful it is for the siblings and parents.
In many cases, what was a two-income household almost overnight turns into a single-income family so that a parent can be present for their child. Parents far too often struggle with fatigue and depression. The stress of giving everything they have to a sick child and having nothing left for themselves or the rest of the family can become overwhelming.
The experience of having a child with cancer is incredibly stressful for the entire family as they try to navigate through this challenging journey.
For this reason, Ma Hila’s Heart Project is dedicated to assisting the entire family, and we strive to meet all their special requests.
How we help Blessing's Way program participants:
Mortgage or Rent Payment
Home Bills like Electricity, Water, and Phone
Bikes and Toys
Laptops and Computers
Concert and Special Theme Park Outings
*We only accept referrals for this program from our hospital partners.
