Where the Money Goes

iStock 000001426209SmallProceeds from the Summer Bash Benefit:

Families that have a child with cancer. Our support helps families with children who are treated at Omaha area hospitals.

We help offset basic living expenses related to treatment.  In 2017, nearly $100,000 was given directly to families for assistance.

The Pediatric Oncology Unit at Nebraska Medicine

The unit treats children fron both The Nebraska Medical Center and Children's Hospital & Medical Center.  The hospital uses the funds for New Patient Packets and gas cards for families.

Children's Hospital & Medical Center Hematology and Oncology Clinic

The clinic offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services for children and adolescents with blood disorders and cancerssch as leukemia, rhabdosarcoma, anemia, brain tumors, sickle cell and lymphoma.  The Summer Bash made a five year commitment to sponsor a play room at Children's for $10,000.  This commitment was met in 2011.
