THE FINANCIAL IMPACT OF PEDIATRIC CANCER
On November 6th, 2019 we walked down to the lobby of the hospital without our 8 year old daughter Liv. We had spent the previous 6 weeks living there while she received end of life care. My husband put in our parking ticket and the total was almost $3,000. These are the added financial costs of childhood cancer that is not often thought about.
