1/5 children diagnosed with cancer pass away from the disease.
One hospital stay costs up to $50,000. An average funeral costs $9,000.
More than 40,000 children undergo cancer treatment yearly.
We are a 501(c)(3) public charity and all donations are tax deductible.
After being notified of a family who is in need of our assistance, we work directly with the oncology social workers at the hospital. The social workers reach out to the family with information about our foundation and ways that we can help. We then work with the family and mortuary of their choice, providing our funds to the mortuary, so that they can work with the family to choose where they would like the use to money.
The Forever With Us Foundation aids in the costs of funerals for pediatric oncology patients at Miller Children’s Hospital Long Beach and CHOC Children's Hospital. With growth, we hope to expand to more children’s hospitals in Southern California.
