Helpful Cancer Information and Resources
If you’re looking for cancer resources, information and support you’ve come to the right place. It is our goal to offer you helpful information as well as someone to reach out to during your time of need. TNK Children’s Foundation exists to bring much needed help to families whose child has been diagnosed with cancer.
What is TNK Children’s Foundation?
TNK Children’s Foundation provides a strong foundation of support for families of children with cancer and other blood diseases. When parents receive that dreaded phone call, we all wish life could be put on hold until our child is healthy once again. Unfortunately, the world won’t wait, and the demands of everyday life continue to pile up. Fortunately, TNK Children’s Foundation fights alongside families facing this difficult situation and the support we offer makes a difference.
TNK is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) public charity, we provide critical, every day resources as well as emotional support to the families we serve.
How Can TNK Help?
TNK Children’s Foundation wants to give you more time to focus on your family—the most important gift. We know that time is precious and can never be regained. At this time we are only serving families being treated at Kansas University & Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, MO Hematology/Oncology Clinic.
We understand that families come in all shapes and sizes, and so we do our best to tailor our services to meet each family’s individual needs. When you apply for our program, we’ll meet with you and discuss the type of help you need. Then we’ll work to match your family with volunteers who can accommodate your situation.
After assessing your family’s needs, we’ll connect you with a member of Team HUGGED (Helping, Understanding, Guiding, Giving, Encouraging during your child’s critical illness ) or Team KISSED (Kared, Inspired, Strengthened, Supported, Encouraged During your child’s critical illness). We hope, with the help of your assigned team member, TNK Children’s Foundation can make your journey easier and relieve some of the stress you are facing at this time.
