FUEL (Families United to Eliminate Leukemia) strives to provide hope and support to families dealing with cancer, despite the age of their child. Through three key platforms, FUEL is making an impact:
- Reach out to families through the Children's Hospitals by providing toys and blankets to children in the hospitals. As well, try to buy a netbook for older children who remain in-patient for extended periods, if they do not have one. This enables them to remain caught up with school and stay in contact with friends.
- Providing spiritual and financial support to struggling families through the clinic, to provide gas cards, dining cards, co-pay assistance and toys.
- Working together with families to do fundraisers to bring awareness and support for children right here in our own communities, that we may not even be aware are fighting this battle.
"We cannot say thank you enough to Nelson for running the FUEL logo on his truck," Heather Smith said. "Taking a stand against childhood cancer is more than a cause, it is our life."
