CHILD Cancer Fund Wish List

The CCF Wish List is a list of those “extras” we so desperately need that don’t necessarily fall into monetary donations, volunteering, or any of the traditional categories. If you are interested in helping to implement any of the programs listed below on our Wish List, please contact Carla Montgomery, Executive Director at 904.396.4223 or via email. There is so much we can do together to make it easier on these special families!

Amazon Gift Cards

We provide a wealth of educational materials for families searching for information about childhood cancer. Each family is given a disease specific educational book that we purchase through Amazon.com. Gift cards are appreciated for this purpose.

Craft Store Gift Cards

A core member of the child’s healthcare team is the Child Life Specialist. She provides diversionary opportunities for play, learning and self-expression designed to minimize the stress and anxiety of a child in treatment. Craft store gift cards, including Michaels, Jo-Ann Fabrics & Crafts, Walmart, Target, etc. are appreciated for this purpose.

Dining Gift Cards

Most families spend extended hours and sometimes days in the clinic or hospital with their children undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments. The cost of feeding a family under these circumstances is expensive. CHILD Cancer Fund would like to provide dining gift cards to families. Grocery store or restaurant gift cards are appreciated for this purpose. 

Fuel Gift Cards

A cancer diagnosis requires frequent trips to the clinic or hospital for tests, procedures and cancer treatment. Travel can involve great distances for some families. The CHILD Cancer Fund provides fuel cards to help defray the cost of transportation. Donated gift cards for local gas stations are appreciated for this purpose.

Snack Cabinet

Many times families are required to stay longer than expected at the clinic and are unprepared for the extended stay. The CHILD Cancer Fund stocks a snack cabinet at the clinic for such emergencies. Grocery store gift cards are appreciated for this purpose.
