Family Reach is a national nonprofit dedicated to alleviating the financial burden of cancer.
When families leave the hospital, cancer follows them home. It cuts many household incomes in half, or even entirely, as patients and caregivers put careers on hold because of daily appointments and treatment needs. This forces them to make dangerous decisions – do they pay the mortgage bill or buy groceries? With your help, we’re providing families with the resources to keep a roof over their heads, put food on the table and maintain access to cancer treatment - at the hospital, and at home.
Funding from our 2018 Boston Marathon runners will go to families receiving treatment at our local partner hospitals: Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, Floating Hospital For Children At Tufts Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, and UMass Memorial Children's Medical Center.
