We work on a national scale is through our frequent trips to Washington, D.C., to speak with members of the House and Senate about the need to raise awareness and finance funding. To date, we have made about 15 trips, and we intend to continue our frequent visits.
GRC is on a constant campaign to make the media and local groups aware of Childhood Cancer, an area that is extremely under-served. In addition to local organizations, GRC also works nationally.
Our support network helps families both medically and emotionally. Medically, we provide mentoring services and family resources.Emotionally, we interact with these families as individuals and meet their day-to-day needs, attempting to offer them some normalcy and stability.
Working locally and nationally, we have created contacts nationally and locally. One current project which requires widespread attention is the compassionate use process, which is being pushed through the FDA.
We fight the battle against Childhood Cancer on a one-to-one basis through our Pot of Gold. Pot of Gold focuses on both the child and the family, ensuring that both have the materials they need in this trying time. The children have contents related to their interests, while the parents receive items which improve their quality of life and ability to care for their children.
We need your help. Will you consider sponsoring a Pot of Gold for a child fighting cancer? We are able to continue this program due to generous people like you.
To date, we have made about 15 trips. We need to ensure that those who have political power remember the children who need their help.
A child is diagnosed with cancer every three minutes. Gold Rush Cure works to make sure that no family is left without help or hope.
