How to Help

Every year generous individuals, families, organizations, foundations, and businesses help to make Hassenfeld a leader in treating not only the child’s illness, but the entire family.

Whether it is volunteering as a patient advocate, making an art project with a child in the playroom, reading a story, or making a donation, your help is always appreciated and brings smiles to our children’s faces.

There are many ways to get involved in the Hassenfeld Center and help to make a difference in the lives of children, young adults, and families living with cancer or blood disorders:

Raising and caring for a child with a serious medical condition is both emotionally and financially challenging for everyone.
