Our agency’s mission is to provide families in Chicago with the basic necessities needed for them to thrive. Right now, we are supporting Compass to Care, an organization that ensures all families can access life-saving cancer treatment for their children.
Compass to Care schedules and pays for travel arrangements to the hospital where a child is being treated for cancer, regardless of the family’s financial situation. By taking the travel burdens of a family, the family is able to focus on what’s most important, their child.
“30% of children diagnosed with cancer do not have an oncologist within 60 miles of them. It is imperative that we support organizations like Compass to Care so that more families with childhood cancer have access to treatment,” said Lisa Jusino.
