Shine Bright For Kids

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and Children’s Minnesota invites you to shine bright for kids. As the largest provider of cancer care in the Twin Cities and state of Minnesota, we believe that better journeys lead to better outcomes. That’s why we have a dedicated resource called the Cancer Kids Fund that helps provide extra care and comfort in the midst of a cancer or blood disorders journey. The Cancer Kids Fund provides funding for things like mortgage, rent and utility payments, clinical research and innovative treatments, holistic and integrative services, and end of therapy celebrations. And we can’t provide this fund without you. Be part of this special month and give back to kids!
