Happy Thanksgiving from FCCF...
Dear FCCF Friends & Family,
As Thanksgiving is upon us, we want to take a moment to say thank you for being part of the Fighting Children’s Cancer Foundation (FCCF).
As you know, FCCF provides needs-based financial assistance to families struggling with pediatric cancer. Since its founding in 1998, FCCF has helped hundreds of families. We have paid mortgages, utility bills, car payments, health insurance premiums, food and lodging expenses, all so that parents can focus on the needs of their sick child and the quality of life of their whole family.
We celebrated this past year surpassing $1 million in direct giving to families. In 2015 we increased giving again, and we are budgeted to give out more than $115,000 in direct family assistance by year-end. This again is more than in any one year since FCCF started. In the last four years, FCCF has more than doubled its giving to kids and families in need.
None of this would be possible without your involvement and support. Your donations, volunteerism, and heart-felt care have made all the difference.
Thank you for being part of FCCF, for spreading the word about the Foundation and the plight of these kids and families, and for showing your support at our events, with our hand-painted pigs, and in various ways throughout the year. Whether you were at our Gala, Golf events, Tricky Tray, or Comedy Night, or if you are planning on coming to our NJ Devils game on Friday or the Children’s Fashion Show on December 6, we enjoy and are grateful for the opportunities to connect with you in person to raise funds, raise awareness, and make a difference together.
Stay tuned for next week’s Holiday Giving Drive, a cyber-drive centered on helping 50+ families around the holidays. Today though, as Thanksgiving draws near, please know that we are so grateful for all of you. Your kindness, compassion, and support mean the world to FCCF and to these courageous kids and families.
On behalf of all of us at the Fighting Children's Cancer Foundation (FCCF) and all the kids and families FCCF has helped and will directly help because of you, THANK YOU.
Wishing you and your families a joyful and healthy Thanksgiving.
Executive Director, FCCF

Each year, around 13,500 children are diagnosed with cancer in the US.
Every day, approximately 250 kids around the world die from cancer.
Childhood cancer survivors are at risk for late effects of treatment, including:
heart or lung problems
delayed growth and development
compromised ability to have children as an adult
increased risk of other cancers later in life
FCCF has met and helped hundreds of families who need support - but here are hundreds upon hundreds more who are still in need. Your participation with FCCF allows FCCF to help more kids and families.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
