GivingTuesday: Kids with Cancer Benefit from National Generosity

PINKY SWEAR FOUNDATION PARTICIPATES IN MASSIVE DAY OF GIVING

EDINA, MINN – [November 23, 2021] – GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Supporters of Pinky Swear Foundation are taking part in that movement through donations to help kids with cancer and their families like All-Star Chloe.

At the age of nine, Chloe was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma. Chloe’s mother, Mia, was going through a divorce and working 70-hour weeks to make sure her three children had a roof over their heads and food on the table. The cancer diagnosis and endless bills that came along with it forced Mia’s family to file for bankruptcy and move into a two-bedroom apartment. Simply staying afloat was a difficulty for Mia and her children every single day.

Pinky Swear Foundation helped pay for a few weeks of groceries for Mia and her children, and a few months later they provided money for a car payment. These things that many people take for granted were huge for a family facing everyday problems while, at the same time, battling a childhood cancer diagnosis.

“I would just say ‘Thank You,” said Mia. “It really does help. A lot of the time, you don’t know what you are going to be doing that day, let alone how you are going to pay the bills. It’s one less thing to worry about.”

Chloe’s battle, like many children’s, is far from over. This GivingTuesday, make sure kids with cancer and their families do not go without food, water, and a roof over their heads this holiday season. Learn how you can help by visiting pinkyswear.org.
