Field of Dreams

Morale Boosts and Memories for Kids Fighting Cancer

A family getaway, an Amazon gift card to do some Lego shopping, a new bike, a trip to Great Wolf Lodge, a new playset, bedroom furniture, a new doll, a chance to swim one last time or have a special birthday party…these are just some of the morale boosts we have provided to ease the heartache of our young cancer warriors through our Field of Dreams program. Hospital psychologists call on us to be bearers of light on the darkest days by giving kids with cancer something to look forward to when they need it most.

Make a Difference in the Lives of Families Affected by Pediatric Cancer

The P.U.N.T. Foundation is a public charity that relies entirely on individual donations and sponsorships to provide critical support and programs for WNY families facing a pediatric cancer diagnosis.

Costs of Cancer

There are almost always hidden costs and challenges associated with a pediatric cancer diagnosis that may not be apparent from the outside looking in. One parent often stops working to help facilitate treatment and an income is instantly gone or wanes. Bills pile up quickly; nearly half of families facing pediatric cancer end up filing for medical bankruptcy.

As we all struggle to handle the challenges of COVID-19, P.U.N.T. is committed to continuing to provide critical financial assistance to WNY families facing pediatric cancer. These families were already in crisis mode and struggling to make ends meet from the devastation of this diagnosis. Please consider helping us stand behind them with a pledge of support in any amount to our "Helping Hands" program. Cancer doesn't stop for coronavirus, and we know they will need us now more than ever. You can help us be ready for the many requests that will be coming from hospital social workers on behalf of the highest need families. Thank you.
