Children’s Minnesota is committed to supporting patients and families in our cancer and blood disorders program. Beyond providing the very best medical care, there are many services and amenities that provide extra care and comfort to kids and families in the midst of a cancer or blood disorders journey. These special services are made possible in large part through the Cancer Kids Fund. This fund is generously supported by community members, local businesses and benefit events hosted by or on behalf of Children’s. Here are some of the special ways that the Cancer Kids Fund may help make your family’s journey at Children’s a little easier.
