Many people feel helpless when they see a child with cancer. How can Compass to Care help? Compass to Care helps by ensuring that these children can access the best cancer treatment with the hope of a cure. Compass to Care helps children, whose parent are facing financial challenges, travel to the hospital for their treatment by paying for gasoline, tolls and parking.  If the child needs to travel to a distant medical center, Compass to care helps with that too by paying for their airfare and lodging. By volunteering to help raise as much money as possible during Tag Days, Compass to Cares give parents relief from expenses they cannot afford and give children the very best chance to beat this terrible disease. Won’t you please help!?
