About C.U.R.E. Childhood Cancer Association
A diagnosis of cancer is always a devastating blow, but never more so than when the patient is a child. C.U.R.E. Childhood Cancer Association exists to provide emotional, educational, social, and financial assistance to Rochester-area families whose children have cancer or a blood disorder. Underlying every facet of our mission is one simple goal: to improve the lives of pediatric cancer patients and their loved ones. We understand the unique, specific needs of families who are coping with chronic illness, and we seek to address those needs wherever possible. Our Parent Advocate program is a nationally recognized model for peer-to-peer support. In addition, C.U.R.E. provides practical guidance and even short-term financial assistance for unexpected expenses. At every step of this uncertain journey — diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, bereavement — C.U.R.E. and its Parent Advocates offer unconditional support in the form of education, empathy, or simply a warm embrace to show families that they do not walk alone.
