Since 1996, Family Reach has been helping families with a child or parent afflicted with cancer deal with the overwhelming financial and emotional burdens of the disease. As families try to cope with years of cancer treatment, out-of-pocket medical expenses and everyday living costs, they often reach critical breaking points. Not only do they risk losing their homes, stability, and

Through an effective process developed through years of close collaboration with hospital social workers, Family Reach provides urgent assistance to families in a timely, compassionate fashion.

As we head into our 20th year of supporting families dealing with the financial realities of cancer, we remain deeply connected to the very reason Family Reach began two decades ago: the families. We are committed to being a financial lifeline and providing support when it matters most, and in 2015 we helped more than 10,000 individuals during their time of greatest need. Each family we serve has a unique and inspiring story, some of which I’m happy to share with you in this year’s annual report. Each individual journey allows us to better understand and serve our families who represent every walk of life from across the country. They are the reason that we still believe everyone deserves a fair shot at getting to the other side of cancer, and they are the reason we’re calling for change.

:: FA M I LY STO R I E S: : Camille Camille was 11 years old when she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her right leg. As an award-winning Irish step dancer, her life changed in just a matter of weeks from dance floors and competitions to the oncology floor at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Over the last three years, Camille has endured limb salvage surgery, many months in a wheelchair, intense chemotherapy, lung surgery and participation in a clinical trial. Her mother and two sisters have been by her side every step of the way. As the medical procedures and treatment continued, the bills began to pile up and Camille’s single mother, Colleen, didn’t know where to turn for help. “When Camille was diagnosed, I was told by the social worker that one parent has to give up their job,” she said. “And in my situation, I was the only income for my household. There were times when I had to make decisions: Do I pay the electric bill or do I go grocery shopping?” Then a friend of Colleen’s told her about Family Reach, prompting Colleen to speak with her social worker.

“What Family Reach did was take a very tangible stress that was on my plate and removed it.” Support from Family Reach has helped this loving family remain afloat through very challenging times. Deeply moved by this generosity and support, Colleen stated simply, “Your help is a gift.” Since meeting Camille and her family, Family Reach has remained close, providing financial and emotional support when needed. Family Reach provided $2,768 for two months of the family’s mortgage, heat and electricity costs during Camille’s participation in an out-of-state clinical trial allowing Colleen to access cutting edge cancer treatment while also relieving significant financial stress. The family also received support through Hope for the Holidays, which allowed them to enjoy time as a family during what can be a very difficult time of year for families fighting cancer.

Paul At only 22 years old, Paul has spent a significant part of his young adult life living with cancer. Paul was initially diagnosed with leukemia (ALL) in April 2012, during his senior year of high school. After a difficult year, Paul entered the maintenance phase of treatment and began attending college part-time. Unfortunately, as he was set to enter his sophomore year at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Paul relapsed. This time he had contracted a second form of cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He began treatment that August and returned back to school in the Spring of 2015. Regrettably, Paul’s cancer returned for a third time in October 2015. Paul’s courage and determination are truly admirable. During his second battle with cancer, Paul would travel for treatment each week to Tufts Floating Hospital for Children in Boston by bus from school. He would often be seen sitting alone in the infusion center studying and working on school assignments. Following treatment, he would take the bus home, often feeling very sick from the side effects of his chemotherapy. Paul’s third relapse was a shock to both his family and his medical team. Because of the aggressive nature of his

This close-knit, loving family has battled cancer for three and a half years -- all while the bills and medical expenses continued to add up. Despite his latest relapse and intensive care treatment schedule, his treatment team reports, “Paul always has a positive attitude. He is the most resilient, responsible and determined young man that we have ever met.” Paul plans to return to college as soon as possible so that he can become a medical researcher focused on eradicating pediatric cancer.

Dalton Dalton was diagnosed with leukemia (ALL) in April of 2015. At only 4 years old, he has a thoughtful nature and charming personality. His parents, Scott and Laura, are very strong advocates for their son. He also has a younger brother, Gavin (2 years old), and half-sister, Hailey (9 years old). The family is originally from Florida but moved to Massachusetts a couple years ago with Scott’s military employment. Scott is in active duty but is currently unable to work due to the intensive treatment support required for their son. His parents have rallied to find help from extended family that reside in Florida, but are understandably overwhelmed by the daily caretaking duties and constant travel to and from the hospital. Dalton’s family felt the financial strain of his cancer diagnosis very quickly. The cost of day-to-day necessities and unforeseen expenses began to add up. With another two years ahead of them, the frequent clinic visits, hospitalizations and additional expenses have caused financial and emotional stress on the family. “This family is one of the most resourceful families I have ever met.

On the days leading up to her diagnosis, Lauren’s parents were alarmed by a change in her personality.Like most children, Lauren was an active 16 month old who loved playing with her older brother, Armando and canine brother, Dexter. Lauren had become lethargic with sporadic fevers and mild bruising, preventing her from keeping up with her regular activities. Concerned that these changes continued to progress, Lauren’s mom Katrina and her Dad, Daniel scheduled an appointment for a checkup. There, they learned her blood counts were abnormal and the following hours unfolded to reveal her diagnosis to be Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. At that time, 75% of her blood was cancerous.

As Lucas remained inpatient and their household bills continued to pile up, Anthony made the difficult decision to sell one of the family’s vehicles. They planned to use the one remaining family car to transport Lucas to and from treatment, while the rest of the family would rely on public transportation to get around. Other cost saving measures the family tried included getting rid of cable, changing to all LED light bulbs in their apartment, limiting Franco’s participation in after school and extra curricular activities, and weekly trips to their community’s food pantry.
